For institutional investors in Norway

Investment Grade Credit

Our investment grade strategies combine top-down asset allocation with bottom-up, high conviction, ideas generated by our experienced sector specific credit analysts, predominantly focused on investment grade corporate bonds.



Our investment grade credit strategies combine top-down asset allocation views with rigorous fundamental credit research driven security selection generated by our team of experienced credit analysts. With no restrictions over sector or geography, and the ability to invest in high yield, our funds have the flexibility to invest in the most mispriced opportunities. Investment is primarily in cash bonds although derivatives may be used to take active credit risk positions or to manage beta risk.

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.



  • Optimises an active approach which reflects high conviction views
  • Credit analysts are encouraged to generate trade ideas away from benchmarks to exploit the price inefficiencies smaller issuers can offer
  • Strong co-ownership of risk between credit analysts and portfolio managers who work closely together to build resilient, diverse portfolios
  • Multiple levers of return, where bottom-up security section is complemented with dynamic asset allocation and duration management.
  • Consistent risk-adjusted outperformance relative to the benchmark and peers
