U.S. Core Bond

The U.S. Core Bond 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. A bond must be investment-grade-rated to be considered for purchase.
