Our Fixed Income Program

BCI offers our clients a diverse range of fixed income products, including global government bonds, corporate bonds, and high-yield debt. By co-investing with specialized external managers, we also provide exposure to private credit opportunities in Canada, the United States, and Europe. Our strategies include yield curve positioning, duration timing, and securities selection. Issuers within our pools are assessed and reviewed regularly for default and credit risk. Credit limits are set for approved issuers to mitigate risks. We use internally- and externally-produced credit ratings to assess the investment risk.
