William Blair Sustainable Fixed Income Strategy
Conservative, diversified portfolio comprised of fixed-income securities that we believe make a positive impact through the lens of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.
Provides the opportunity for higher yields and returns than the Bloomberg Barclays Aggregate Bond Index with securities that we believe are impact focused.
Disciplined Investment Approach
Disciplined approach that combines fundamental research with macro-economic impacts to identify relative value and desirable characteristics while employing active risk management. The strategy retains flexibility to invest up to 40% of the portfolio in below investment-grade rated securities while maintaining a diversified portfolio with emphasis on securities with sustainable businesses and activities.
