Fixed Income

What are the benefits of a fixed-income solution in your portfolio?

There are several reasons you may want to consider including fixed income assets into your investment portfolio:

Fixed income assets generally react in a different manner than equity to market events, providing an effective diversifier to your equity exposure


A potential source of income

Fixed income assets can be a source of income through interest or dividend payments.


May help protect your principal

Fixed income assets generally retain their value over time as they are less likely to suffer large drawdowns.


Smoother return profile
