Bonds are an important component of a well-diversified portfolio. Investing in bonds can provide a stable stream of income and reduce portfolio volatility. Bonds not only help to preserve capital by stabilizing returns during periods of weakness in the equity markets, but also provide a source of funds when unusual buying opportunities in the equity markets emerge.
Our primary approach to managing bonds is to generate income while preserving client capital. For this reason, the focus of the firm is largely restricted to well-collateralized bonds. We take a disciplined investment approach in order to add positive incremental gains over time. As both active and value managers, we continually monitor the risk involved in every fixed income security and will adjust our holdings when faced with changing economic circumstances.
