During periods of economic turmoil, in-depth, well-resourced and expert research becomes vital for those seeking secure and attractive long-term returns from fixed income investing. Equally, if not more important, is choosing an investment manager with real ability to identify the right opportunities and to avoid those that could go very wrong.
Valuable, in-depth research is necessarily a labour intensive process, and at M&G, we have a large and ever growing analyst resource. Our career analysts specialise in corporate credit, financials, ABS and macro research and keep abreast of developments in the global financial system.
As our analysts do not manage money, they are able to focus fully on research and allocating independent ratings to all issues. Most of our team have worked in the corporate sectors which they currently cover – expertise we find invaluable when assessing each issuer’s creditworthiness.
Their output goes beyond what is typically produced by credit rating agencies, enabling investors to make more informed and timely investment decisions.

The output of our macro research team plays a key role in helping our portfolio managers construct the best bond portfolios for our clients. Learn more about our macro research capabilities.
