Investment goal

Combines a concentrated global equity portfolio with a high conviction U.S. and global fixed income allocation. Security selection is driven by bottom-up fundamental research. Managers look for valuation disparity in the market place to position the portfolio where the greatest risk/reward opportunities lie which typically runs counter to macro trends.

Key reasons to invest

An unconstrained, go-anywhere global bottom-up asset allocation strategy that will invest across multiple asset classes, sectors, regions, countries and currencies in pursuit of a strong total return.

A well-diversified, yet concentrated portfolio based on the highest conviction ideas of four experienced portfolio managers, that have more than 130 years combined investment experience

Continuous collaboration between teams, supported by Loomis Sayles’ deep global research platform, ensures only their best ideas are represented in the Fund.
