Fixed income securities allow investors to match the profile of their assets to liabilities, secure low risk returns and diversify their portfolios.
We have a long history of providing fixed income advisory and dealing services to a range of institutional and private clients. This business goes back to the 19th century and is rooted in our historic business with governments, local authorities and international banks.
The business has survived and flourished in changing markets. Our fixed income team has a wealth of experience and expertise in helping portfolio managers make informed assessments of interest rate, duration and credit risk in bond products across various currencies.
The team works closely with our in-house investment strategists to devise investment ideas for clients and produces regular thematic research on issues of key market interest. Given the contraction in market liquidity in fixed income in recent years, the range of our counterparties and market contacts has become particularly important in recent years. This enables clients to achieve favourable dealing outcomes in difficult fixed income markets.
The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and you may not receive back the original amount invested.
You will have access to independent advice and execution across the full spectrum of bond products in all currencies in all major international markets, as well as less liquid bond markets. As we do not take positions or make markets you can be assured that we will be acting in your best interests.
