Join Henry Song, portfolio manager for the Diamond Hill Core Bond and Short Duration Securitized Bond strategies for a discussion about opportunities in the investment-grade fixed income market including a breakdown of the securitized markets and the importance of looking beyond the benchmark for investments in investment-grade fixed income. 

Mr. Song will also offer his insights into the importance of maintaining an allocation to core fixed income as a key component of an asset allocation.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Opportunities in the investment-grade fixed income universe beyond the standards dictated by the benchmark (Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index)
  • The broad and diverse securitized market, from asset-backed securities to commercial mortgage-backed securities and everything in between
  • How portfolio construction in the core bond space can deliver a compelling portfolio that differentiates from peers
  • Why, despite historically low rates, a core bond allocation is a vital part of any asset allocation
