Fixed Income Mandates

Guardian's fixed income approach is based on the beliefs that every decision should tend toward preserving capital and that bond markets can reward active management.

We preserve capital by focusing on high-quality issuers and augmenting public credit ratings with our own hands-on research of security covenants, company fundamentals, industry trends and regulatory conditions. Our active management of bond portfolios is designed to reduce risk while capturing incremental gains through both capital gains and income.

These beliefs are consistently applied across a full range of fixed income strategies and within many of our clients’ highly-customized portfolios.
