Our investment platforms and access to our global asset management network enable us to offer clients a variety of investment solutions across asset classes, geographies and styles.
We believe we can produce superior long-term performance by identifying temporary valuation anomalies in the fixed income markets ahead of the consensus. We capture these opportunities through exposure to multiple sources of return, each implemented by experienced investment teams within a disciplined research and risk management framework.
Through our Multi-Asset Strategies and Solutions group, we offer an integrated approach to asset allocation, alpha and beta separation, and retirement solutions that encompass a broad range of traditional and alternative asset classes. The group brings extensive experience in domestic and international markets to provide advice to investors in separate accounts, pooled accounts, annuity portfolios and mutual funds.
Fundamental and Quantitative Equity
We believe that markets are inefficient, and an investment process driven by specialized, independent research can produce consistently higher benchmark-relative returns. To that end, our equity research analysts, all of whom boast extensive sector-specific experience, develop original insights and non-consensus expectations for companies, thus creating a proprietary information advantage. Our indexed and enhanced index equity management is supported by a history of innovation and achievement.
The ING Senior Loan Group, one of the largest, most experienced managers of below investment grade, floating-rate loans, actively manages broadly diversified portfolios that provide a natural hedge against rising interest rates. Secured by a first lien on borrowers’ assets, senior loans typically have stronger credit fundamentals than unsecured corporate bonds.
Through global coordination, sub-advisory and distribution partnerships we offer a range of high quality alternative investments — hedge funds, private equity and real estate — that provide clients access to the excess returns and diversification benefits of these strategies. With teams of experienced professionals across alternative markets we are able to tap a depth of expertise that can be brought to bear on any situation.
