The fund (symbol: BANIX) is intended to be an “all season” strategy for investors seeking consistent returns through all market environments. In the pursuit of its objectives the fund has the flexibility to invest in an unconstrained fashion across global fixed income securities and sectors including strategies that go both long and short in an attempt to capitalize on market opportunities in both directions.
Bandon said the philosophy underlying the strategy is to incorporate an absolute return approach in the management of the two principal risk/return drivers for fixed income investing – interest rates and credit – within predefined exposure bands and a rigorous, quantitative risk management framework.
