A Tradition of Disciplined Bond Management
Thornburg Investment Management was founded by Garrett Thornburg in 1982 on the belief that fixed income managers could do a better job of preserving wealth after investors account for inflation, taxes, and expenses. For more than 30 years, we have sought — via a responsible, straightforward, organic approach to bond management — to provide investors with attractive returns and relative stability of principal.
A Conservative View of the Role of Bonds in a Portfolio
We view the role of bonds in a portfolio more conservatively than many asset managers. We don’t employ complex, exotic, and risky tactics in an effort to “juice” returns, and believe that a fixed-income position should serve as the ballast for a well-diversified portfolio, not as the sails of the ship.
A Straightforward, Organic Investment Approach
We seek the best relative value across a broad array of asset classes. Our strategies are typically simple and straightforward. We don’t reach for yield; we conduct rigorous credit research and invest only when the risk/reward tradeoff appears tilted decidedly in the shareholder’s favor. Our portfolios are run on a cash-only basis, meaning that we don’t employ leverage or complex trading tactics to try to grab return.
Thornburg’s structure as a global manager means that each of our portfolio managers and analysts works across a broad array of geographies, sectors, asset classes, and security types, and is conducive to a free exchange of ideas in the pursuit of the best relative-value opportunities.

Investments carry risks, including possible loss of principal. Portfolios investing in bonds have the same interest rate, inflation, and credit risks that are associated with the underlying bonds. The value of bonds will fluctuate relative to changes in interest rates, decreasing when interest rates rise. Unlike bonds, bond funds have ongoing fees and expenses. Investments in mortgage-backed securities (MBS) may bear additional risk. Investments in the Fund are not insured, nor are they bank deposits or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity.
