Fund objective
The fund's objective is to provide investors with capital growth by investing mainly in liquid USD denominated investment grade government and corporate bonds. The fund focuses on the most attractive investment themes defined through a disciplined topdown analysis that drives portfolio allocation, duration [0-8 years], curve positioning and credit quality. OYSTER USD Bonds is a flexible, actively managed portfolio and is designed to exploit bond market opportunities outside of the main allocations, by allowing the manager to invest across non-USD denominated, high yield and emerging debt as well as leave up to 15% of the fund’s assets unhedged to USD.
