Investment Methodology

OpusAM uses a top-down investment methodology that begins with an appraisal of the Malaysian economy and its financial markets in the context of global & regional economic trends and capital flows. This sets the basis for the overall asset allocation and maturity structure decision. Credit selection for fixed income portfolios is then carried out after an analysis on the outlook of the broad domestic economy, the individual sectors within the economy, and the companies within each sector. This is usually combined with bottom-up analysis that directly identifies undervalued or potential upgrade credits.
