We are seeing renewed demand for convertible bonds as investors react to historically low interest rates and near record stock prices.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
Halbert Wealth Management (HWM) is pleased to announce that one if its AdvisorLink® recommended money managers, Wellesley Investment Advisors, has now surpassed $2 billion in convertible bonds under management.
Wellesley has been managing convertible bonds for clients with its absolute return-seeking strategy since 1995. By investing in principal-protected convertible bonds, Wellesley attempts to limit downside risk over full market cycles, while preserving upside potential.
“We are seeing renewed demand for convertible bonds as investors react to historically low interest rates and near record stock prices,” noted Greg Miller, CPA, Wellesley’s Co-Founder and Co-Chief Investment Officer.
HWM President and CEO, Gary D. Halbert, noted, “We have chosen to work with Wellesley because with convertible bonds, you have access to the benefits of stocks and bonds in a single investment. However, selection of the right convertible bonds is crucial.”
