Our actively managed Global Credit strategy delivers higher risk-adjusted returns with a diversified portfolio that includes public and private credit market segments.

While traditional investors operate in siloed segments scattered across asset classes, IMCO does credit differently. We take a holistic approach to portfolio construction, allocating capital across the entire public and private global credit spectrum—corporate, structured, real assets and emerging markets. The result is a highly diversified portfolio that provides clients with a single allocation to credit, offering both a total return and the best relative value returns between public and private credit.

With decades of experience investing across segments, geographies and cycle stages, our sophisticated Global Credit team is capable of responding to market opportunities as they arise . Our collaborative culture and value-add approach to strategic partnerships makes us a preferred partner to some of the largest investors in the world. When selecting our partners, we seek to understand how managers approach ESG and climate risks in their underwriting and engagement practices. We include ESG risk analysis in our direct investment decision-making process.

We have a targeted strategy to grow our highly diversified Global Credit portfolio to $8 billion or more by 2025, offering clients unmatched value and cost-effective, risk-adjusted returns well into the future.
