Barbara McKenna, Managing Principal, was recently quoted in the January 2018 edition of Emerging Manager Monthly. The article, titled “Fixed Income Coming Back Into Favor With Programs,” highlights` the continued success of emerging, minority, and women-owned fixed income managers within emerging manager programs.
While some asset owners have restructured their emerging manager programs, fixed income has been one area where plans have maintained their exposure. Barbara noted the increased participation for fixed income managers in programs that formerly focused primarily on equities and alternatives. Looking ahead, she anticipates; “Investors will turn to smaller active managers when volatility returns to the marketplace.”
