Investment Philosophy

We believe our combined approach of in-depth bottom-up credit analysis with top-down macro views is the key to identifying attractive risk-adjusted investment opportunities.

The Corporate Team’s strategy seeks to generate consistent positive excess returns through the economic cycle using a rigorous bottom-up analysis and structured evaluation of security selection opportunities. We attempt to exploit market imperfections by seeking to: identify favorable credit stories, capitalize on relative value opportunities, and avoid credit events.

Our Value Add

Experienced emerging markets debt team provides coverage across the universe of Emerging Markets corporate bonds. The EM Corporate team is also supported by an extensive firm-wide fundamental research platform of more than 60 analysts.

  • Credit-Intensive Approach:High-quality fundamental bottom-up credit and sector analysis made possible by the limited number of credits covered by any given analyst. This approach is enhanced by our established relationships with issuers and policy makers.
  • Consistent Process: Rigorous and disciplined credit underwriting process and Investment Committee approach, which includes a global, consistent, and comprehensive views across EM asset classes.
