US TIPS Full Discretion

Investment Objective

Exceed the benchmark return by an average of 100 basis points annually over the course of a market cycle while approximating benchmark risk.

Investment Style

Construct a well-diversified, higher-yielding inflation-protected portfolio with a bias towards Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS). Exposure to the diversifying sectors (which include credit, global inflation-linked securities and mortgage-backed securities) may be derived through derivative and forward transactions. This strategy allows for opportunistic investments in high-yield, emerging markets, non-dollar securities, commodities and bank loans.
