Short Term Strategies at SBH

Strategy Description

Putting cash to work in a low-rate environment.

Segall Bryant & Hamill’s (SBH) suite of short term strategies may provide a sound option for investors with short term liquidity needs with a focus on risk management. These strategies represent highly customized solutions designed to enhance the cash portion of a diversified portfolio by providing higher yields than traditional money market alternatives while helping to protect against interest rate risk. SBH offers solutions through the Short Term and Short Term Plus strategies. A customizable Short Term Municipals strategy is available as well.

 

 

Short Duration Income Solutions

The SBH Short Term strategies provide income and short term liquidity without taking significant interest rate risk. As illustrated in Exhibit 1, the strategies have historically yielded more than a money market fund, without taking significantly more duration risk. In addition, while money market funds may provide relative safety to investors, they often have gates, higher fees, and other components that can make them a less preferable investment.
