Why Invest now?
With market uncertainty and volatility still a feature of most asset classes, for investors looking for a lower risk option, investment grade bonds may be an interesting option. As many markets face the prospect of a recession, investment grade bonds offer investors a relatively low risk-return option due to their high credit rating.
Overall, yields for investment grade debt are high compared to historic levels and issuer fundamentals remain resilient. These factors are part of the reasons why investment grade securities are considered by some to be offering an attractive entry point.

No assurance can be given that our fixed income strategies will be successful. Investors can lose some or all of their capital invested. Our unconstrained fixed income strategies are subject to risks including counterparty risk, operational risk, liquidity risk, credit risk, and the impact of any techniques such as derivatives. The use of such strategies may also involve leverage, which may increase the effect of market movements and may result in significant risk of losses.
