Absolute Return Bonds

Aegon AM’s absolute return bond approach seeks to provide above cash rate returns with low volatility and low correlation with underlying fixed income markets.

With a focus on managing risk and preserving capital, we work to construct a low risk (but not a no-risk) alternative to cash.

Distinguishing characteristics

Absolute return bond portfolios seek a positive absolute return above cash rates regardless of market conditions with low volatility, low correlation to underlying fixed income markets and with minimal drawdown in an effort to preserve capital.

Specialist expertise

We have been managing absolute return bond strategies since 2011.

Focus on alpha over beta

We aim to minimize exposure to credit and interest rate market moves in an effort to profit from relative value opportunities within those markets.

Maximizing global opportunities

Our approach benefits from a focus on sourcing the best ideas across the entire global fixed income universe.
