Fixed Income

Bill Prendergast
In a world of low-to-zero interest rates, global fixed income investments can still offer opportunities for attractive, predictable income with low volatility.

We seek out high-quality credit, interest rate and other fixed income investments around the world, creating a diversified portfolio of low risk income investments for our clients. 

Fixed income investments have always played an important role in helping investors preserve capital and generate predictable returns with less risk. But in a low interest rate world, fixed income markets have become more difficult to navigate. 

Atrium helps advisers and their clients take advantage of the benefits of fixed income, by seeking out the best fixed income investment managers and the most attractive opportunities across the globe. We provide access to a diversified portfolio of Australian and global fixed income investments, managed by a specialist team with deep experience across various market and interest rate cycles. 

We have applied our experience and global research to source a selection of leading fixed income investment managers, with extensive capabilities across geographies and security types. By combining their skills in a single portfolio, we help our clients access a broader range of opportunities in one diversified fund.  

Because our portfolios are actively managed, we can respond rapidly to emerging opportunities and risks across regions with very different credit markets, interest rate settings and economic cycles. 

What is fixed income and how does it help reduce risk? 

Flexibility, active management and a global view all play a key part in enhancing fixed income returns and keeping risk low.
