At Armstrong we have been sourcing top Fixed Income talent for clients since inception of the firm.  Risk minimisation and yield generation are the two primary reasons that investors use bonds.  Government, semi government and high grade corporate bonds have provided stability, diversification and opportunity to investors for some 30+ years.  Since 2009 our Fixed Income practice has worked increasingly closely with our Credit practice as the low interest rate environment has driven investors to take advantage of the richer yields offered by higher risk fixed income securities.
