Our Philosophy

Lawrence Park funds are designed around three core principles which the Lawrence Park team believes are central to alternative fixed income: Capital Preservation, Low Volatility and Consistent Returns. 

The Lawrence Park team is comprised of seasoned investment professionals with extensive fixed income and credit expertise from global and Canadian banks. Lawrence Park aims to offer the same credit trading strategies used by the proprietary desks of major banks to the Canadian investor. The portfolio management team employs a simple but proven relative value approach to identify and profit from inefficiencies in corporate bond markets worldwide. 

Once securities are selected, the Lawrence Park team employs a disciplined active portfolio management process. This involves extensive attention to risk management, including hedging strategies against rising interest rates, currency and selected credit risk. In using this investment process, Lawrence Park seeks to enhance yield, reduce volatility, and deliver consistent returns to their investors.
