Securitized Credit: Where We’re Going, There Are No Roads

Second Quarter 2020 

Navigating a financial crisis amid the coronavirus.

Insight from our sub-adviser, Schroders Investment Management
Michelle Russell-Dowe
Head of Securitized Credit
Nicholas Pont
Investment Director


  • Today’s crisis looks and feels different than a typical financial crisis.
  • The growth of leverage has created a different subset of problems that may need a different playbook.
  • We believe there are securities with the potential to perform well in uncertain periods, while still seeking to retain upside to the eventual recovery.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, event and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. The purchase of securities in the securitized credit market can result in additional prie and counter party risk.
