Our Select Fixed-Income Portfolios share these key elements:
The ability to buy bonds at scale on both primary and secondary markets and navigate the inefficient bond market through established relationships with national and regional dealers.
At the time of purchase, bonds must be rated A-/A3 or better for greater stability and security potential typically seen in higher-rated bonds.
Capitalizing on institutional research allows for extensive evaluation of government, corporate, and municipal issuers, as well as individual bonds and sectors, seeking value that the market may have overlooked.

*Credit ratings depict a registered rating organization’s forward-looking assessment about credit risk that reflect the creditworthiness of an entity or security. Ratings are statements of opinion of the issuing organization and are subject to change without notice. This portfolio intends to focus on securities that fall within the light grey portion of the Credit Quality Target image. “High risk” and “low risk” represent relative risk levels typically associated with a rating. Higher rated securities are still subject to the risk of default.
