With yields still at extremely low levels, you have to make your assets work harder to generate attractive risk adjusted returns and income for your clients. This is particularly true for government bonds, where yields have dropped to unprecedented lows. In this environment, actively managed credit (or corporate bonds), is a potential source of higher returns, attractive income and diversification.
With thousands of issuers to select from, credit is a hugely diverse and growing asset class. To harness the strongest opportunities, while avoiding pitfalls, credit funds need to be managed with intelligence and precision. To do this effectively, and act on ideas quickly, takes in depth, forward-looking research and experience.
In a connected and interdependent world, a global perspective is vital in making the best decisions.
