The Ramirez Strategic Core Strategy generates “plus-like” alpha, without the use of derivatives or emerging market debt, through dynamic, concentrated sector allocation and rotation within the investment grade universe; RAM also allows a greater relative duration bandwidth (+/- 25%) versus the benchmark. Our objective is to maximize total rate of return and achieve better risk adjusted results than the benchmark over a complete market cycle.
