Enhanced Core Fixed Income

The Enhanced Core Fixed Income strategy is designed to deliver excess return relative to the taxable fixed-income universe as measured by the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. The team's primary focus is to seek outperformance from each of four decisions—duration, yield curve, sector, and issue selection, within defined risk management parameters. Our process consists of three components: portfolio strategy, sector strategy, and risk management. Portfolios consist primarily of Treasury bonds, agencies, mortgage-backed securities, and corporate bonds. The portfolio may contain up to 25% of the plus sectors, including high yield, emerging markets, municipals, and TIPs, for potentially higher returns and greater diversification.
