In a climate of lower interest rates, which looks set to remain the norm for some time, you need your assets to work harder than ever before. This is particularly true in fixed income, where most government bond yields remain at very low levels.
The diversity of global credit markets provides active managers a rich source of return and diversification to your portfolio. Credit is a highly complex and fast moving area, bringing opportunities to managers that can differentiate between individual issuers and bonds. Companies raise capital and issue debt for various reasons and by different methods, and that may not always match clients’ requirements. Many opportunities may appear attractive but can involve compromise on several fronts, including the durability and quality of an individual investment. So it’s essential your credit managers conduct the in-depth analysis required in order to uncover value for you and navigate the risks.
Our global platform allows for ideas to be generated from every corner of the world, while providing a framework for consistent comparison and evaluation. We have the requisite scale and capabilities to uncover the most promising areas of return and to understand sources of risk. Yet we retain the ability to move quickly. We can act on our decisions with conviction, rather than having to hold investments simply due to their size.
Our credit capabilities are built on the deep thinking and experience of our credit team. We have around 100 credit experts based in nine locations worldwide who provide local insight and expertise. Together they take a fundamental research-based, bottom-up approach to investing.
Our credit teams are part of a multi-discipline research platform at Schroders, who can draw on the knowledge of our in-house experts within including equity, ESG, commodities, property, etc.
We have a diverse range of credit strategies that are purpose built to deliver what you need, whether it be absolute return, total return or income. We offer credit strategies that span geographic regions, client outcome and risk tolerance.
We listen carefully to what you need and match this to what credit can deliver, paying close attention to how that outcome is delivered, with the aim of providing the premium client investment experience.
This breadth allows you to blend and switch between strategies throughout the market cycle, yet benefit from a consistent investment approach and philosophy.
