Investment Strategy

DAMI will achieve its objectives by investing in a portfolio of fixed income instruments issued by North American governments, financial institutions and corporations. DAMI will utilize a combination of investing strategies, including outright credit trading, relative value credit trading, outright rate trading, relative value rate trading and duration neutral portfolio construction.

  • Outright credit trading: These strategies involve purchasing or selling short a credit instrument based on a view as to the direction of the credit spread and/or price of the security.
  • Relative value credit Trading: These strategies involve purchasing one security and selling short another security that’s expected to benefit from the differential net return of the securities.
  • Outright rate trading: These strategies involves either purchasing or selling short  a government bonds and/or other interest rate related instruments based on a view as to the direction of prices of these instruments.
  • Relative value rate trading: These strategies involve purchasing one security and selling short another security to create a position that is focused on idiosyncratic movements between the individual securities.
  • Duration neutral portfolio construction. This strategy involves construction of short and long position, having duration close to zero to insulate the portfolio from interest rate movements.
