Fixed Income Seeks to identify high-quality taxable and tax-exempt issues through intensive market and credit research. Careful management of interest rate and credit risk aims to minimize portfolio volatility.

Market sectors and individual securities are analyzed with the goal of enhancing diversification and reducing portfolio volatility. Investment-grade domestic and foreign dollar-denominated securities are included.
