European High Yield

Aiming to access the total return potential of European high-yield bonds through a portfolio diversified by issuers, sectors, and geography


About this strategy

A European high yield strategy that actively seeks to generate competitive risk-adjusted returns, principally through strong security selection combined with top-down beta management. The strategy adopts an ESG focused, research-first mentality on both macro and security selection risks.

The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Past Performance is not a guide to future performance. No investment strategy, including a protection strategy, can ensure a profit or eliminate the risk of loss.

Investment approach

Repeatable, active approach

  • Active management of beta and portfolio composition focused on taking the right amount of risk throughout the cycle.
  • Categorisation of risk and return characteristics of each security in portfolios.

Research driven

  • Analysts cover issuers across the full capital structure and are ESG focused, ensuring a complete picture of fundamentals.
  • Co-ownership of risk exists between portfolio managers and our analysts.

Globally aligned

  • One team across two investment centres.
  • Integrated global research team, pursuing the best risk-adjusted return opportunities irrespective of issuer domicile.

Robust risk management

  • Minimise downside risk and emotional bias through a stop-loss process.
  • Utilisation of off benchmark sectors to diversify risk across sectors, quality, capital structure, and economic sensitivity.
