Fixed Income Strategies

Dana’s process and philosophy to managing fixed income portfolios starts with the understanding that we’ve been hired to minimize loss of principal while providing a consistent income to portfolios. Our process eliminates the futile attempt in predicting interest rate movements and focuses on the relative-valuations of securities. Risk analysis is an ongoing component of our process as we believe alpha is most appreciated within a defined risk framework..
