(LGIMA) was founded in 2006 and specializes in fixed income, liability driven investment (LDI) solutions and index capabilities for the US institutional market.* We offer a range of strategies to help our clients manage their investment objectives including investment grade fixed income, which can range from market-based alpha-oriented strategies to those that are designed to be more liability-centric, derivative overlays, and indexed solutions.

Our solutions-focused culture is geared toward customization for our clients. As a firm, LGIMA has professional resources dedicated to insuring that our credit portfolios are structured in a risk-conscious manner, but can still have the ability to produce excess returns over an appropriate, sometimes custom, benchmark.
