Benchmark driven credit

LGIM provides a comprehensive range of regional and global benchmark driven credit solutions:

Global credit

We leverage our regional expertise and asset allocation capabilities to deliver truly global credit strategies for our clients.

A global portfolio can be built by simply combining regional allocations or portfolios together. However, we believe that global credit portfolios have additional opportunities to add value by considering cross-market relative value differences on a tactical as well as longer term strategic basis.

LGIM has three global strategies in active investment grade fixed income:

  • Global Credit managed against a sterling benchmark (Core Plus)
  • Global Credit managed against a global benchmark
  • Global Credit managed against an absolute return benchmark

A consistent macro thematic investment process is employed for all strategies, supported by rigorous fundamental credit research to identify conviction views and manage risks vs benchmarks - reflecting the distinctions and dynamics of local markets.

Taking regional excellence global

LGIM is one of the UK’s largest investors in sterling corporate bonds, running considerable portfolios through both our index-tracking and active businesses.

Within our global credit solutions we leverage our regional expertise and asset allocation capabilities to deliver a truly global strategy for our clients.

In addition to sterling credit we offer a specialist range of regional strategies, including European, US and emerging market credit.
