Across the capital structure

We search the capital structures of attractive issuers to determine which bonds and derivatives offer superior relative value.

Selecting securities, not just issuers

To identify strong relative-value opportunities, security selection can be equally as important as issuer selection.

ESG integration

We assess the impacts of environmental, social and governance factors on instruments to manage risk – and to identify opportunities.

Experienced

Principal members of the team have together generated impressive track records since 2004.

Investment approach

We believe that global, relative-value investing throughout the capital structures of issuers can deliver strong returns through the cycle.

Through top-down analysis, we determine our risk appetite and the return prospects of different regions and sectors. These findings direct our disciplined, bottom-up research, in which we seek exposure to issuers with attractive credit risks and aim to determine which securities in their capital structures provide superior relative value.

Our global approach, in which we invest throughout the US, Europe and the emerging markets, provides us with access to an expansive set of opportunities and sources of liquidity.
