Investment Manager

Mellon Investments offers a range of alpha and beta investment strategies designed to meet each client's specific needs. Their disciplined approach is grounded in long-term economic relationships and provides an integrated view of the distinct components that comprise the global financial market. The firm's primary investment strategies include: Active Equity, Active Fixed Income, Index, and Multi-Asset and Multi-Factor. Active Equity strategy identifies attractive stocks through rigorous quantitative and fundamental analyses blended with analysis of current business momentum and places controls on sector selection and, if applicable, country selection. The Multi-Asset and Fixed Income strategy, as well as the Index investment strategies cover a variety of asset classes and span systematic, active, and index approaches. Index strategies provide exposure to a set of equity and fixed income benchmarks with low tracking error. Multi-factor equity and fixed income strategies are beta techniques that utilize a rules-based approach to provide exposure to equity and fixed income, and tend to have slightly higher tracking error to their respective benchmarks than index strategies. Multi-Asset strategies offer a wide range of solutions to achieve specific investor risk-return and/or income goals. The Active Fixed Income investment process combines top-down, macroeconomic analysis with proprietary, fundamental bottom-up research to identify attractive sectors and securities.
