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.


Why Now?

  • With a duration target of 0.25 years, the portfolio is well-positioned for the uncertainty around interest rates.
  • The portfolio's investments are focused on the short and ultra-short end of the yield curve, where interest income is high and mark-to market volatility is usually lower.

Why this Fund?

  • Three separate risk pools – liquidity layer, intermediate risk layer, core risk layer
  • Diversifies* across many different U.S. Dollar fixed income asset classes, sectors, credit ratings, and security structures
  • High-quality Portfolio focused on senior securities within each asset class and structure Why Amundi − Seasoned investment team − Value-driven process focused on diversified asset allocation and security selection − Core competency in both corporate and mortgage credit spreads
