Investment style

Using disciplined and rigorous processes, Delaware Investments seeks to add value by employing multiple, risk-adjusted strategies incorporating yield curve and duration positioning, sector allocation, and security selection. Our relative return capability is a core style approach managed on a top-down, trend-following basis with a rigorous bottom-up approach to security selection.

Sector allocation: We actively rotate among investment grade taxable fixed income sectors to capture value in spread changes.

Yield curve management: We actively manage maturity structure to capture shifts in the shape of the yield curve.

Duration adjustments: We constrain the duration of client portfolios to a tight band around the duration of the relevant index.
