Seeking income in excess of money market funds

We believe that a value-oriented, total return, risk-managed approach to fixed income investing should produce competitive long-term performance. We integrate top-down views and risk management with a bottom-up valuation process.

 We believe in high quality, multi-sector approach that invests in three distinct, diversified pools of risk.
