Our Approach

Investors look to the fixed income component of their portfolio as a way to access consistent returns, downside protection and capital preservation. In an era of historically low interest rates, traditional fixed income management alone will not meet investor’s basic needs.

Lawrence Park scours the fixed income market through a risk management lens:

  1. Identifying the most attractive components of the corporate bond and preferred share markets on a risk adjusted basis
  2. Isolating these opportunities and extracting value through the use of active trading techniques not available to traditional mutual fund managers
  3. Levering our experience and ability to use alternative tools to manage portfolio risk, enhance returns and profit from market inefficiencies

We aim to provide investors with the higher yield they’ve been searching for but without the downside risk of equities or high yield bonds.

THE NEEDS OF INVESTORS 
MAY NOT HAVE CHANGED MUCH OVER TIME. BUT THE SOLUTIONS THEY NEED ARE EVOLVING EVERY DAY.

Our expertise defines our process.
