Delaware Investments Fixed Income team: A look inside — Portfolio Management
Portfolio managers with the fixed income team at Delaware Investments highlight the approach and work ethic they use in constructing and managing portfolios.
David Hillmeyer, CFA
Senior Portfolio Manager
Portfolio construction is about understanding the risks and knowing what your client needs. A portfolio manager identifies and quantifies the risk rewards across all sectors, with the objective really optimizing the team’s view in the most efficient manner.
Paul Grillo, CFA
Co-Chief Investment Officer, Total Return Fixed Income Strategy
The fixed income team is well positioned to manage money and serve clients’ needs on a global scale. We have specialists in all of the areas, whether that be the developed markets, the emerging markets, and of course the U.S markets as well, and we have a very full staff to do fundamental research in all of these global areas.
Brian C. McDonnell, CFA
Senior Portfolio Manager, Senior Structured Analyst
Fundamental research is critical to what we do at Delaware, not just with corporate bonds but also in structured products.
It’s not about one individual; it’s about a group of individuals that are working collectively for the same goal.
Christopher J. Hanlon, CFA
Insurance Strategy and Asset Liability Management
I really appreciate the way we work together as a team. We do not have a star investment [manager] and everyone contributes. We ask for our portfolio managers to contribute, we ask for our research analysts, and also our traders to contribute to our clients’ portfolios.
It’s working together and making the best decisions that makes you come in every day.
