The Case for Multi-Asset Credit

With an emphasis on senior, secured investments and income, the Janus Henderson Multi-Asset Credit strategy is well suited to investors seeking a dependable source of yield. In addition, due to its low duration nature the strategy can sit alongside liability driven investment (LDI) programmes and has been used by clients concerned with rising rates.

Recent research has shown1 that once normalised for structural differences, illiquid direct lending strategies have produced little difference in returns versus the more liquid high yield and secured loans markets. Our MAC strategy provides access to the alternative credit markets but in a liquid (monthly dealing) approach.
