BIM offers a range of investment solutions from fundamental and quantitative active management to indexing strategies designed to gain broad exposure to the world's capital markets. They offers both US and non-US equity investment strategies using a variety of investment styles including growth, value, core and enhanced equity, that are targeted to specific market-cap ranges, including small-, mid-, small/mid-, large- and all-cap, as well as geographic and industry sectors. The firm also offers alternative asset and multi-asset separate account strategies. The product range may also include sector funds, long-only and long-short portfolios, as well as products that combine different strategies to create balanced and asset allocation portfolios. For certain private investors and other SMA program investment strategies, BIM creates and maintains 'target' portfolios of securities, to which securities are added and from which securities are removed from time to time. The firm utilizes fixed-income strategies that are actively managed, model or index based. Actively managed fixed-income mandates generally employ an active investment style that emphasizes rotation among different types of debt on a relative value basis, specific security selection, quantitative analysis of each security and the portfolio as a whole and intensive credit analysis and review. Model-based institutional strategies typically invest across a broad spectrum of global fixed-income securities as well as currencies, futures and swaps. BIM employs a risk controlled, systematic process for portfolio construction and alpha generation. Alpha sources may include security selection, duration and yield curve positioning, industry rotation, asset allocation, and currency positioning. For institutional index strategies, BIM typically invests in accordance with the risk and return profile of the benchmark either by replicating the index, or utilizing security level or stratified sampling.
