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.
