Zeo Capital Advisors

Zeo Capital Advisors aims to manage a bond mutual fund that “looks” like a bond—focusing on income not price catalysts. We believe fixed income should be consistent and accessible while producing an appropriate return for risk. Our straightforward approach to fundamental short-duration corporate credit has resulted in low volatility and positive absolute returns over every 12-month period while besting the Bloomberg Barclays Aggregate on both returns and risk since inception almost 7 years ago. The strategy is concentrated (40-60 positions), inherently capacity constrained and has little overlap with broad market mutual funds or ETFs—providing clients access to companies not already in their portfolios. Investors use the fund to diversify away from core fixed income duration and as part of tiered long-term savings. At Zeo we also take great pride in knowing our client base of independent fiduciaries (RIAs, family offices and non-profit institutions) and engaging as an extended investment team.
