Fixed income

We offer fixed income solutions with various risk and return objectives that range from traditional asset classes to more specialist areas such as emerging market debt, securitised debt and social bonds.

Our global fixed income research team is resourced to provide a balance between detailed due diligence of issuers and a clear vision of market and sector trends. Credit selection is key, with our research experts conducting proprietary, bottom-up company analysis and sharing insights to achieve better outcomes for our clients.

Portfolio managers follow a flexible approach to portfolio construction, combining top-down and bottom-up analysis to enable us to respond to challenges posed by structural changes in demographics, globalisation and geopolitics, as well as the evolution of the credit cycle.

Why choose Columbia Threadneedle for fixed income?

Our 199-strong global Fixed Income team is split between research, portfolio management and support teams, as well as a dedicated trading function. With this scale of resources managing $247 billion in assets, we have the global presence to conduct thorough analysis of bond issuers yet retain the ability to deliver returns from security selection. *

Responsible investment (RI) is embedded within our investment process and we have developed proprietary tools that provide a robust RI framework and better analysis for portfolio managers. Columbia Threadneedle is also a pioneer in impact investing and has been a leading advocate in the development of the burgeoning green and social bond markets.
