Investment Process

All of our US strategies follow a robust bottom-up credit research process that is based on the belief that superior long-term returns are realised through compounding current income and avoiding principal loss. We aim to achieve this through fundamental credit analysis that focuses on companies with improving credit trends.

In this way we aim to provide you with a process that minimises default risk and manages volatility through active management, while pursuing high yielding opportunities and potentially generating capital growth.

Funds

US High Yield Bonds Low Carbon

Objective: To seek high income in USD from an actively managed bond portfolio whose carbon footprint is at least 30% lower than that of the ICE BofA US High Yield Index (Benchmark). As a secondary extra-financial objective, the water intensity of the portfolio aims at being at least 30% lower than the Benchmark.
