"Our value-driven, opportunistic approach seeks to drive returns through a combination of current income and capital appreciation. We have a long-term investment horizon and look across the full spectrum of fixed-income securities to make allocations that provide value and diversification."
Elaine uses a research-driven, bottom-up process to invest across multiple asset classes, sectors, regions, countries and currencies. Her goal is to build a high-conviction portfolio that generates strong total returns over the long-term while managing exposure to potential downside risk.
