STAMP 1-5 Year Fixed Income

Our STAMP 1-5 Year Fixed Income strategy seeks to generate excess returns over the short duration benchmarks through the active management of sector, yield curve, security and duration allocations within the investment grade universe, with a target duration of +/- 20% to the stated benchmark.

Our portfolio management team seeks to leverage the firm’s deep fundamental credit research and analytical capabilities to enhance returns. Portfolios are broadly diversified across U.S. investment-grade sectors (Treasury, Agency, Corporate, Securitized, Municipal and Money Market) with opportunistic allocations to the High Yield and Bank Loan sectors where permitted. At a minimum, the average portfolio credit quality is A2 or A. Our team is focused on securities with maturities/average lives of seven years or shorter.
