For institutional investors in Norway

European Investment Grade Credit

For investors seeking high-quality European credit exposure and an opportunity to access total return that potentially exceeds the benchmark

Overview

About this strategy

The strategy seeks to provide a total return in excess of that generated by the benchmark over a market cycle by investing primarily in Euro denominated investment grade rated corporate bonds. The investment process combines asset allocation views with rigorous fundamentally driven security selection from the credit analysts.

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 does not predict future returns.
