The PH&N Fixed Income team based in Vancouver, Canada, is one of Canada’s largest fixed income managers. The team of experts follows a collaborative investment process using multiple strategies to meet client needs depending on opportunity & risk.

The key objective of our fixed income approach is to add value while controlling risk. There are four distinguishing characteristics of this approach to fixed income investing:

  • the use of multiple strategies to add value;
  • a conservative approach, with moderate positions taken concurrently in a number of strategies focusing on the risk/reward profile for the strategy and the portfolio over all;
  • an emphasis on risk controls using strict guidelines and rigorous monitoring; and
  • an emphasis on the use of yield-enhancing strategies, such as foreign, corporate, and provincial bonds and mortgages.

Investment process
