Combining credit expertise across private and public markets


As one of the world's largest fixed income investors, with more than US$400 billion in AUM, we are a long-term, collaborative partner to companies across credit markets. Our extensive underwriting and credit analysis capabilities — combined with our in-depth ESG and global industry research — fuel our expertise in finding differentiated sources of alpha in every corner of the credit markets.


Investment grade private placement

Our investors seamlessly combine our extensive private placement experience, our firm-wide underwriting and credit analysis capabilities, our broad research platform across asset classes, and our deep experience working with insurers —as one of the largest asset managers for insurance companies globally.

We take a hybrid approach to the private placement market, combining direct origination with partnership-driven engagement with syndicate agents. We believe unique origination and selective syndicated sourcing may offer incremental value, improve allocations, and enhance diversification.
