Euro CLOs a top pick for 2022
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.
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.
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.
From the beginning we built our team of investment professionals to reflect the structure of today’s fixed income market. From structuring and ratings specialists to trading and investment banking, we have people who know the bond markets inside out. Our team is deliberately drawn from a diverse range of nationalities and cultures. This is how we look to escape the echo chamber, using diverse insights from people who are not having the same conversations and reading the same press.
Speculation on the timing of the Bank of England’s first post-pandemic rate hike has been rife. But whether the BoE hikes rates later this week, next month or even waits until after year-end, it is worth thinking about what it will mean for the general public, a step away from the financial markets.
