Fixed Income Relative Value Targeting equity-like returns with lower variability
|Raphaelle Moysan, Fixed Income Client Portfolio Manager: "In reviewing the 2012 performance of their absolute return portfolios, many investors feel they were too conservatively positioned and did not appropriately capture the enviable upside in risk assets last year. For 2013, investors want equity-like returns, but with lower variability."|
