Fixed income overview

Our structure at Wellington Management — we do not have a chief investment officer — fosters collaboration and cross-pollination of ideas and enables each specialist team to makes its own decisions when managing funds. We believe this independence can help generate more consistent performance across market environments by diversifying return sources. 

In this video, Investment Directors Amar Reganti, Tobias Ripka and Tanya Sanwal explain how Wellington's distinct culture of collaboration, cross-asset research and global presence can help us manage robust research-driven fixed income solutions for various clients’ needs.

Our fixed income funds combine both top-down and bottom-up inputs to identify and exploit fixed income market inefficiencies around the world. Macroeconomic analysts and market strategists identify top-down structural and cyclical risks and opportunities, while our bottom-up, fundamental research approach draws on insights from both fixed income and equity analysts. In our opinion, this balanced perspective, combined with access to the management teams from the companies in which we invest, can help us anticipate changes in issuers’ capital structures before these changes are priced into their securities.

We use advanced risk-management systems to help portfolio managers take only intended investment risks that have the potential to provide attractive returns for investors. These proprietary systems allow us to monitor concentrations of risk within investment styles and across the firm, while testing how investment positions might behave in challenging markets. We continue to refine these tools, ensuring their relevance amid ever-changing market conditions and ongoing innovation in new security types.

Fixed Income Insights

Funds returns are shown net of fees. Fund returns shown are net of actual (but not necessarily maximum) withholding and capital gains tax but are not otherwise adjusted for the effects of taxation and assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. If an investor’s own currency is different from the currency in which the fund is denominated, the investment return may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations.
