Presentation at Morgan Stanley Financials Conference

June 13, 2012 12:00 p.m. ET


Douglas Peebles - Head and Chief Investment Officer, Fixed Income


Unidentified Speaker

It’s my pleasure to introduce Doug Peebles, head of AllianceBernstein’s fixed income unit. Doug became chief investment officer of AllianceBernstein’s fixed income in 2008, and oversees all of the fixed income portfolio management and research teams globally. Fixed income has been an area of strong growth and solid performance for AllianceBernstein, representing over half its assets under management as of the latest quarter, with $224 billion.

With that, I’ll turn it over to Doug.

Douglas Peebles

Thank you. Good afternoon everybody. So as Kevin said, I run the fixed income group at AllianceBernstein. I’ve been with the firm now for literally 25 years and 12 days. So I’m in my 26th year at the firm. I have always been involved in fixed income. Most of the time, over my formative years if you will, were in the global fixed income area. So I’m unabashedly pro-global as it relates to investing, in all types of investing, fixed income in particular.

So if you will, when the industry thinks about fixed income, largely because this is what we put forth as our key tenets, or our key elements, is first and foremost a global firm. We actually think and act globally in all that we do.

The second one is an integrated research approach, which is not particularly strange for a large asset manager. And AllianceBernstein in particular, the combination of quantitative and fundamental, but in the world of fixed income, that’s a little bit strange. Most of the big fixed income asset managers are predominantly fundamentally based.
