Sustainable by design
We fully integrate ESG research into all our investment decisions and asset selection
A credit portfolio not linked to market index returns
A buy and maintain strategy is a cost efficient strategy to harvest the credit risk premium in global credit markets. We aim to select corporate bonds to optimise yield whilst controlling risk and hold them to maturity – replacing holdings if there are credit concerns or the opportunity to enhance yields.
Customised segregated and pooled solutions
We shape our segregated mandates and pooled funds around specific objectives for institutional investors – such as liability cashflow matching, or managing buy-out friendly solutions for pension schemes. All available as either a standalone portfolio or as part of wider hedging programme.
Combining expertise across a £25 billion* business
Our London-based buy and maintain credit investment team brings together credit, derivatives, and solutions expertise from across our fixed income and Schroders Solutions capabilities. They’re backed by research and analysis from our specialist ESG team and proprietary impact tools, which embed sustainability across our entire investment approach.
The result is a solutions-focussed, truly global portfolio that’s shaped to deliver for you.
