Sunny’s philosophy

Fundamental-driven asset allocation and intensive, bottom-up credit research and security selection are the cornerstones of Sunny’s approach. He invests across an intermediate time horizon, based on his view that market prices typically converge with fundamentals over a nine to 18 month period. This intermediate timeframe sits between a pure tactical approach, which he believes is too short-term for prices to connect well with fundamentals, and a strategic approach, which is too long for most investor needs. Sunny’s approach dynamically and nimbly adapts to changing market conditions with the goal creating consistent, attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors.
