Absolute Return Fixed Income​

We manage a variety of fixed income strategies that invest with an absolute return lens or seek to capitalise on relative-value opportunities across the bond, credit, currency and structured markets. These approaches draw on our longstanding experience as a leading global fixed income manager and seek to pursue returns even in volatile and rising-rate environments.

Investment in the funds described below places an investor’s capital at risk. Alternative investments tend to be speculative and use leverage, which can magnify potential losses. Additionally, they can be subject to increased illiquidity, volatility and counterparty risks, among other risks.
