Bradford & Marzec − Who We Are


Bradford & Marzec LLC, founded in 1984, manages fixed income portfolios utilizing a dynamic, long-only investment style. With each economic cycle the Firm’s top-down, relative value process seeks to add excess return by shifting between fixed income sectors. The efficacy of that process, refined over many economic and financial cycles, has proved its resiliency.

We invest directly in the cash bond markets with limited use of derivatives. Our size and focus on liquid securities enable quick and meaningful implementation of our portfolio strategies. We are able to shift among sectors without adversely affecting pricing in most market conditions. Counterparty risk for our clients is minimal given our limited use of derivatives.

Our Senior Portfolio Management team averages more than 31 years of investment experience and has worked together for more than 18 years.

"Commentary on U.S. Treasury floating Rate Note" - November 2013
The U.S. Treasury released the date for the first issuance of federal government floating-rate notes in its quarterly refunding announcement on November 6, 2013. The Treasury will auction between $10 billion and $15 billion in two-year floating rate notes on January 29, 2014. This is the first new security issued by the Treasury in almost 20 years; TIPS (Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities) was the last new product.

"Bank Loans - Reviewing the past, with a view to the Future" - September 2013
The current loan market is not significantly exposed to the market value structures that caused forced selling in 2008 and 2009. Given the fact that the market has structurally changed since the global financial crisis, it is necessary to remove these distortions to truly understand loan volatility, loan relative value and loan returns. As a result, we argue that the asset class can be viewed as exhibiting a highly favorable adjusted Sharpe ratio.
