Our Philosophy

Private Fixed Income at Loomis Sayles

An Evolving Opportunity Set

Yield potential versus risk in Private Credit

The above examples are shown for illustrative purposes only and should not be construed as investment advice. Investment decisions should consider the individual circumstances of the particular investor. This reflects the current opinions of the Private Credit Group only, and views are subject to change at any time without notice. Other industry analysts and investment personnel may have different views and opinions.
Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against a loss.
Any investment that has the possibility for profits also has the possibility of losses, including the loss of principal.
