U.S. Fixed Income



We have been managing fixed income portfolios in Philadelphia since June 1989. We believe that our investment process creates a unique and differentiated approach to investing that emphasizes bottom-up, security selection.

The U.S. Core Fixed Income product is the original and founding product of the Philadelphia team. Additionally, our Core Plus product is highly regarded and illustrates our long-standing relationship with the London office. We seek to enhance the risk-adjusted returns of our U.S. Core investment grade strategy through measured exposures to High Yield, Emerging Market Debt, Currency and Interest Rates. We offer higher alpha strategies that are customized to meet the specific risk/return objectives of our clients.

The team has a long track record with the nine senior investors having an average of 23 years industry experience, 8 years with the company †.

New York

On May 21, 2013, Aberdeen acquired Artio Global Investors. We welcome the former Artio fixed income investment teams into the Aberdeen family. They will continue to manage the following strategies from New York City, as they have for the past 12 years:

  • Global High Income
  • Total Return Bond
  • Core Plus +

All of the above strategies combine a global focus and emphasis with a research orientation, which should provide a strong complement to our Philadelphia-based products. Similar to the Philadelphia investment team, the senior members of the former Artio teams have significant industry experience, and have worked together for a number of years.
