Invest for Efficient Income

A Diversified Approach to Generate Income

Rethinking Fixed Income to Combat Uncertainty

In today’s quickly changing environment, finding income-generating investments that mitigate risk is a challenge for investors. The solution? Taking an actively managed, diversified approach. At AB, we pursue a better risk/reward balance with our Efficient Income platform.

Building Blocks for Efficient Income

An efficient income portfolio minimizes the level of drawdown risk for every level of income.

  1. Embrace risk to generate income with global, multisector credit

    Add global high yield, emerging-market debt and securitized credit in a diversified portfolio to generate excess income.

  2. Choose high quality for downside mitigation

    Embrace high-quality core bonds to counterbalance risk assets.

  3. Balance rates and diversified credit in a barbell structure

    This efficient structure generates the most income for every unit of risk.
