- Capitalizing on relative value opportunities
- Avoiding credit events by investing in bonds that are nearing maturity
The strategy is designed to provide the potential for:
- Stable income generation with historically lower volatility
- Protection from interest rate risk, while still offering attractive total return potential compared to equivalent U.S. Treasuries
- Diversification across the vast EM corporate bond debt market
