Investments: Fixed Income Capabilities

Guggenheim’s fundamental investment philosophy and our approach to managing fixed income strategies have remained consistent. Our overall goal is to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns to protect and grow our clients’ capital. Within each mandate, we recognize that clients often have specific requirements for income, yield and duration, among other objectives.

One of our greatest strengths is providing customized solutions designed to meet those individualized needs. We apply the following capabilities toward achieving our clients’ goals:

Innovative Ideas

Guggenheim’s culture fosters innovative thinking. We specialize in custom designed solutions that are unlike “cookie cutter” products from many other investment managers.

Broad Expertise

Guggenheim’s fixed income teams bring expertise up and down the capital structure – ranging from government and corporate credit, to preferred and common stock, to the origination of bank loans and private placements.

Middle Market Specialization

Guggenheim focuses on identifying, researching, and purchasing middle market investments, which are oftentimes mispriced or overlooked by our peer group. We believe these opportunities can provide a complementary risk-reward profile to more benchmark-dedicated investment strategies.

Proprietary Research and Analysis

Guggenheim employs more than 150 investment professionals dedicated to research, evaluation and management of fixed income assets. In addition, our 17-person, dedicated legal team reviews covenants, credit agreements and bond indentures so that we fully understand the protections and rights of each security prior to purchase for client portfolios.

Embedded Risk Management

Risk management is designed to mitigate unwanted risk at every stage of the investment process. It includes in-depth credit research at the front end of the process, pre-trade and post-trade compliance checks that incorporate client guidelines, and daily monitoring of news that could affect the portfolio.

In a Financial Times Op-Ed, Scott Minerd writes that the U.S. labor market participation rate could be key to when the Federal Reserve raises interest rates. Many investors expect the Fed to move in 2015, but Minerd argues that as more Americans seek work, higher interest rates could be pushed back to 2016.

High Yield and Bank Loan Outlook - July 2014

Certain areas of leveraged credit are overvalued, particularly CCC-rated bonds and bank loans, but often some of the best profits come in the final phase of a cycle. With valuations frothy, we believe now is the time to start moving up in credit quality. Our analysis finds value in BB-rated and B-rated bonds and we are most positive on BB-rated and B-rated bank loans, where discount margins still trade wide of ex-recession averages.
