Strategies & Capabilities

Systematic Active Fixed Income Investing

A risk-controlled, low-correlation alternative to fundamental strategies.

Our Philosophy

Across the fixed income marketplace, transparency and efficiency have improved substantially in recent years, making a systematic investment style possible. Investors could benefit from the differentiated, risk-controlled performance of systematic investing strategies, while avoiding the cognitive and behavioral biases inherent with traditional discretionary asset management.

  • Outperformance opportunities can be identified systematically, across a broad spectrum of securities, using a quantitative, rules-based approach, while avoiding  institutional constraints and behavioral biases.
  • Our factor-based insights, powered by Barclays Quantitative Portfolio Strategy (QPS), seek to identify alpha opportunities following a robust and systematic investment process.
  • Implementation expertise allows us to capture risk premia effectively with high sensitivity to the desired style factors.

Our Offering

We combine industry-leading factor research from Barclays QPS with the proven portfolio construction expertise of State Street Global Advisors. Bringing to bear our capabilities in trading complex fixed income instruments, we aim to offer clients a comprehensive set of products across the full range of fixed income markets.
