Emerging Market Debt Relative

Investment Objective

The Emerging Market Debt Relative strategy uses the JP Morgan JEMB Equal Weight 1/3 sub-index as its benchmark.  This index equally weights hard currency sovereign, hard currency corporate, and local currency sovereign issues.  The strategy seeks to outperform this hybrid index by 150+ basis points over a typical market cycle (gross of fees, per annum).


A relative return multi-sector strategy that integrates sovereign hard currency debt, local currency rates, local currencies, and emerging market corporate debt within an actively managed, strategic asset allocation framework. Using this approach we capture the full opportunity set in emerging market fixed income while managing these four alpha sources in an integrated manner with the goal of achieving the highest risk-adjusted returns available within the asset class.

Investment risks: All investments involve risks including the risk of possible loss of principal. The strategy will be affected by the investment decisions, techniques, and risk analyses of the investment team, and there is no guarantee that the strategy will achieve its investment objective. The values of the investments held by the portfolio may fluctuate in response to actual or perceived issuer, political, market, and economic factors influencing the financial markets generally, or relevant industries or sectors within them. Fluctuations may be more pronounced if the strategy invests substantially in one country or group of countries or in companies with smaller market capitalization. The market value of the portfolio may decline as a result of a number of other factors, including interest rate risk, credit risk, inflation/deflation risk, mortgage and asset-backed securities risk, US Government securities risk, foreign investment risk, currency risk, derivatives risk, leverage risk and liquidity risk. Frequent trading of the portfolio may result in relatively high transaction costs and may result in taxable capital gains. Investing overseas involves special risks including among others, risks related to political or economic instability, foreign currency (such as exchange, valuation and fluctuation) risk, market entry or exit restrictions, illiquidity and taxation. Emerging markets pose greater risks than investment in developed markets.
