Our Strategy

Execute, Broaden, and Scale Sustainably, with Equity

Our investment decisions are guided by the five pillars of the Prime Credit strategy, which serves as our compass. In essence, this strategy focuses on delivering, diversifying, and expanding responsibly, in collaboration with Equitable Holdings..

Diversifying Our Services

Expanding our offerings to meet client needs, we launched new core investment solutions through innovative structures like Active ETFs, including the Ultra Short Income and Tax-Aware Short Duration Muni offerings. Additionally, we introduced new strategies like the Diversity Champions Equity, SMA Custom Muni, and Fixed Maturity Portfolio 2025.

Expanding Our Platform

Through the CarVal acquisition in 2022, we significantly expanded our Private Markets AUM to $56 billion. We also invested in growing our insurance-oriented asset management business and attracting new third-party clients. Additionally, we revamped our muni investment platform to enable customized and tax-optimized solutions for our clients' municipal separate accounts (SMAs).

Growing Responsibly

Our commitment to sustainable investing continued in 2022 with the launch of new Portfolios with Purpose, bringing the total AUM to $23.8 billion by year-end. We were further recognized for our leadership in this space, receiving the Best Sustainable Fund Management Group of the Year award from Investment Week, while our Muni Impact fund won Environmental Finance's IMPACT Award for FI Fund of the Year.

Partnering for Success with Equitable Holdings

Equitable's ongoing support in 2022 fueled our key strategic initiatives, including the launch of our Ultra Short Income ETF and the successful CarVal acquisition. Their repositioning of GA permanent capital towards higher-yielding Private Alts, Private Placements, and Securitized Assets – with over 50% of their $10 billion committed capital deployed as of year-end 2022 – further strengthened our position.
