Fund objective
The fund invests into High Yield Bonds issued by companies which are domiciled or exercise the predominant part of their economic activity in the United States of America. The fund seeks to achieve attractive risk-adjusted return by using a fundamental and research driven approach to investing in the high yield investment universe. Traditional and distressed credit analysis is the driver of the investment process and is at the core of the portfolio construction. The distressed credit analysis helps evaluate opportunities in the lower quality portion of the high yield market where dislocations may occur.
