Neuberger Berman’s Lancioni to speak on fixed income in Milan
Ugo Lancioni, portfolio manager at Neuberger Berman will explain why in the current environment the ‘traditional’ benchmark driven approach based on long-only, investment-grade bonds issued by developed nations may leave investors unable to meet their objective of generating stable income at InvestmentEurope‘s Fund Selector Forum Italy 2014.
Lancioni will explain how investors can benefit from employing managers that focus on using an expanded toolkit that can potentially enhance diversification through new sources of alpha and by taking advantage of market mispricing.
His team employs a fundamentally-driven investment process backed by a suite of quantitative tools to combine multiple alpha sources generated across the wider Neuberger Berman fixed income platform. This approach is designed to avoid persistent macro or thematic biases in the portfolio and targets a low beta to fixed income markets over a full market cycle.
Lancioni is the head of Global Currency and serves as a co-portfolio manager on multiple fixed income strategies. He is a member of the senior investment team that sets overall portfolio strategy for Global Investment Grade. Ugo also leads the Currency team in determining FX exposures across various portfolio strategies. Prior to joining the firm, Ugo was employed by JP Morgan for 11 years.
