Best Fund Provider – US Bond
The prospect of a rising rate environment has led to increasing consolidation of fixed income positions within Asian HNWIs’ portfolios. From direct single-line investments into pooled vehicles, investors demonstrated reduced conviction in active trading and concentrated positions, all the while, aiming to retain attractive levels of income.
With its flagship US income strategies, AllianceBernstein was selected by gatekeepers for its excellent performance and its ability to consistently deliver total returns and income.
The asset manager was singled out as a fund provider of choice by private banks as they found assurance in its barbell approach to investing between low risk debt in investment grade and sovereign bonds, and higher risk debt in high yield and emerging market bonds.
In addition to its renowned income strategy, the asset manager has also demonstrated versatility through its expertise by manufacturing other products. Among these, the creation of fixed maturity bond portfolios recently garnered much attention in Asia for its simplicity and outcome-oriented nature.
For these reason, AllianceBernstein has been selected as Asian Private Banker‘s Best Fund Provider – US Bond.
