BlackRock Fixed Income Global OpportunitiesBronze

Ashis Dash

The fund spreads risk across sectors, regions, and issuers and emphasizes taking many small bets rather than fewer, larger ones. The four-person management team led by Rick Rieder has used the fund’s flexibility to their advantage across a variety of market environments, including both weak and strong credit markets as well as periods of rising and falling interest rates. While there are slight differences between this GBP-denominated fund and its longer running US-domiciled variant, the Silver-rated BlackRock Strategic Income Opportunities, investors have been served well since Rieder took reins of the latter in 2010 in our opinion. Their disciplined, risk-focused process stands out in a category of risk-takers.
