Western Asset believes in long-term, fundamental, value-oriented investing. The Firm's objective is to provide fixed-income clients with diversified portfolios that are tightly controlled and managed for the long term. Western believes that significant inefficiencies exist in the fixed-income markets. By combining traditional analysis with innovative technology, Western seeks to add value by exploiting these inefficiencies across eligible sectors.
Western Asset emphasises the value of active management by utilising multiple investment strategies, including active sector and issuer selection. The Firm believes these strategies enhance value by limiting the ability of any one strategy's underperformance from significantly impacting returns.
Western Asset is committed to excellence in client service. The Firm has devoted significant resources to its Client Service & Marketing Unit, and expands its relationship base only when the resources are available to continue to provide excellent performance and service to existing clients.
