Structured Product Levered


The investment objective is to maximize total return on a risk adjusted basis. The strategy seeks to deliver attractive income with low correlation and volatility relative to other fixed-income sectors. The team takes an active relative value approach across all sectors of the residential, commercial and consumer markets. The strategy utilizes opportunistic leverage to enhance returns. The strategy invests significantly in floating rate assets seeking to minimize sensitivity to changes in interest rates. The Firm deploys multiple diversified strategies that benefit in different environments so no one strategy dominates performance, helping to dampen volatility.
