The firm was founded in 2001 by Barry Allan. In the early years, Marret focused exclusively on high yield mandates for private investors and institutions. The high yield mandates’ returns approached equity-like levels, while providing the benefit of lower volatility.
A risk management focus helped Marret avoid the severe losses experienced by markets in the financial crisis of 2008-09.
In 2009, Marret added investment grade credit capability. Marret now offers a full spectrum of corporate credit investing strategies covering investment grade, high yield, short term cash alternatives, and opportunistic fixed income strategies for both core and alternative allocations.
Became a 65% owned subsidiary of CI Financial Corporation.
At January 2019, AUM totaled $4 Billion across all strategies.
