BTIM: Australian Fixed Income Fund Manager of the Year
In presenting the Australian Fixed Income Fund Manager of the Year award, Money Management/ Lonsec noted:
“The Australian Fixed Income Fund Manager of the Year is BT Investment Management (BTIM). Head of Income and Fixed Interest, Vimal Gor, has successfully integrated his global perspective and disciplined, defensive style to BTIM since joining in 2009. It was this global perspective and discipline which saw the BT Fixed Interest Fund lead the pack in 2014, one of very few to outperform the benchmark. Gor’s risk aware approach has allowed him to adapt to the unusual circumstances of a bond market dominated by QE and technical influences – a world where traditional fundamental bond market valuation models have struggled to keep pace.
The fund itself has been managed utilising a highly refined investment process, which has historically aimed to generate alpha through small individual trade ideas as opposed to large sector bets. The Fund offers investors a highly risk controlled exposure to the asset class, which Lonsec considers a particularly important consideration in the current market environment.”
