Vontobel Fund - TwentyFour Monument European Asset Backed Securities

Asset-Backed Securities
As at 17 Jul 2024

Investment objective

This bond fund aims to provide an attractive level of income relative to prevailing interest rates, while maintaining a strong focus on capital preservation and respecting risk diversification.

Key features

The fund invests with a focus on Europe in fixed-income securities, particularly asset-backed securities, in various currencies of diverse issuers of good quality (at least low investment grade). The fund can use derivative financial instruments for hedging purposes.


The experienced and diverse investment team focuses initially on capital preservation, avoiding defaults and mitigating volatility, as well as accessing an attractive revenue stream on a risk-adjusted basis. The team drives this by a thorough analysis of fundamental credit risk as well as by the liquidity profile of each position and the relative value present in the portfolio compared to the market. The team extensively mitigates interest-rate and currency risks by investing solely in floating-rate bonds and hedging currency exposures.

A fund that invests across the full range of investment grade European ABS, using the natural advantages of the asset class and a vastly experienced team to target stable, attractive returns.

Why invest?

  • ABS normally offers a higher yield for a given rating or maturity than more mainstream investments such as government or corporate bonds
  • ABS are virtually all floating rate, meaning they are naturally expected to be far less volatile than fixed rate bonds in periods when interest rates are rising
  • Built-in investor protection features such as credit enhancement, loss-absorbing reserve funds and the legal separation of issuer and asset pool
  • High transparency with transaction reports detailed enough to view the performance of each individual loan in the asset pool, enabling investors to conduct their own research
  • ABS remains a largely under-researched and poorly understood asset class, meaning those that put in the effort and expertise can be rewarded with a complexity premium

Investment universe

The European ABS market is split broadly into four areas, though certain sub-sets of these sectors are considered important distinct products in their own right, such as Auto ABS and Credit Card ABS.

  • Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS) are backed by pools of mortgage loans created by banks and other financial institutions. They represent the largest component of the European ABS market and are typically the most liquid
  • Consumer Receivables include a large variety of unsecured consumer debt types that have been securitized, including auto loans, credit card receivables and unsecured personal loans
  • Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) are mortgage-backed securities backed by commercial rather than residential mortgages, using structures similar to other forms of ABS
  • Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs) are pools of corporate loans refinanced in a securitized structure, where pools can be static or actively managed by a specialist loan manager
