Marquette Quoted on Non-Core Fixed Income Flows

August 18, 2015

On August 18, Kelli Schrade, director of manager research, was quoted in a FundFire article on non-core fixed income flows and opportunistic products, Pension Slashes Billions from Core Fixed Income Allocation. Kelli commented on how the low return U.S. equity market has institutional investors exploring other asset classes for returns: “This year, [U.S. equity has] been a low return market. That’s caused folks to sharpen their pencil to see where [they] can get return from.”

She added that opportunistic products is one of the areas that has seen growth: “Really [investors are] expanding beyond just the core fixed income products. There are quite a number of opportunistic products that have gained a lot of traction – they might [entail] some core, but they might not primarily be a core [fixed income] product.”
