Taking an Alternative Approach to Income
Loomis Sayles Strategic Alpha portfolio manager discusses how a flexible fixed income approach can act as a diversifier.
- Non-traditional absolute return approach provides greater flexibility to pursue uncorrelated opportunities and manage volatility in today’s markets.
- Diversifying away from core fixed income strategies may be desirable in a rising interest rate environment.
- Loomis Sayles Strategic Alpha team is currently looking to minimize portfolio risk by pulling back on credit spread allocation and duration.
All investing involves risk, including the risk of loss. There is no assurance that any investment will meet its performance objective or that losses will be avoided. The ability of an actively managed investment to achieve its objective will depend on the effectiveness of the portfolio manager.
