Dave S. Goodson
Head of Securitized Investments, Fixed Income
SummaryInvests in fixed income sectors collateralized by distinct asset types: commercial real estate (CMBS), non-agency residential housing (RMBS) and nonmortgage assets (ABS).
PhilosophyWe believe superior risk-adjusted returns are achieved through: recognition that relationships among alpha sources change over time, sometimes irrespective of the business cycle; fluid utilization of loan level research to discover unrecognized value ahead of consensus; and balanced application of both macro and security-level investment inputs.
ObjectiveTo generate consistent, superior risk-adjusted returns through an investment process that utilizes a comprehensive mix of security level inputs informed by relevant macro themes as they evolve over time.
ProcessThe strategy employs both a quantitative and qualitative research process to support the building blocks of its investment process: collateral underwriting, structural underwriting, counterparty underwriting and risk management. This process incorporates a relative value approach to asset allocation (specified within each securitized sub-sector), active risk management, and research-intensive security selection. The strategy operates under the philosophy that security selection decisions are best made by experienced asset-specialists covering their area of expertise (specific securitized sub-sectors), in a team based approach. The strategy utilizes a mix of proprietary tools and vendor supplied sources of information to access granular, loan level data, which is then organized and employed to generate bond valuations accurately and efficiently. The quantitative value discovery process is combined with a qualitative assessment by our asset specialists of the risks and/or rewards associated with any given security. These decisions are further informed by a top-down view that is timely, and well vetted within Voya IM's multi-sector investment process.
