    Investment approach

    • Focus on investment grade rated ABS with a typical average rating of AA/A

    • Diversified exposure across the ABS market through both asset classes and regions

    • Fundamental bottom-up analysis alongside assessment of market technicals and macro inputs

    Market opportunity

    Investment grade ABS offer significant protection from a pick up in defaults
    Bonds typically trade at a yield pick up versus similarly rated more traditional fixed income
    ABS are typically floating rate and have a shorter spread duration versus other assets
