Global fixed income and cash

Our investment philosophy is aligned to the needs of our clients

We believe the best way to invest in fixed income is to take an active, independent, valuation-driven approach. Prices can overshoot valuations in fixed income markets due to trending behaviours, and this is where the real opportunity lies.

Investing in fixed income requires an ability and resilience to be long when assets are cheap, and short when assets are expensive.

As well as actively managing risk within a disciplined, valuation-driven framework, we believe in adopting an investment process that is transparent and repeatable. Our approach includes an innovative company credit rating system at its core. Detailed research means every decision is analysed from a global context, and benefits from the diverse perspectives of the economics, property, infrastructure and equity teams.

“The most rewarding opportunities are when momentum and valuation coalesce”
Simon Warner, Head of Global Fixed Income

  • A$61.518 billion assets under management
  • 50+ years investing in fixed income
  • 4 global locations

As of 31 December 2015
