Capturing the Opportunity of Constraints


PGIM FIXED INCOME


Fixed income markets contain a high proportion of investors whose goal of identifying the most attractive relative value is subverted by jurisdictional or self-imposed rules, regulations, and constraints, or is superseded by other non-economic objectives, such as accounting conventions. This, in turn, creates opportunities for total return, multi-sector fixed income investors willing to consider broad investment guidelines and greater degrees of portfolio management freedom. In this paper, we lay out:

1) The fixed income market segmentation we observe and the resultant high dispersion in risk-adjusted reward; 2) Principles for identifying relative value and pitfalls to avoid; 3) An outline of our portfolio construction approach for building multi-sector portfolios.
