Multi-sector

We manage a wide range of regional and global multi-sector strategies that span the risk spectrum.

Aegon AM’s multi-sector fixed income strategies employ a fundamental, bottom-up credit research investment process, which is complemented by proprietary top-down macroeconomic analysis and risk monitoring.

This disciplined bottom-up approach emphasizes the analysis of fundamentals, valuation, sentiment and technicals. Portfolios are managed using a team-based approach in which portfolio managers access fundamental research from the global research platform to identify opportunities and help mitigate risk.
