High Yield Solutions
Global High Yield
This strategy aims to maximise total returns and generate income with a strong emphasis on limiting drawdowns by investing in a high conviction, diversified portfolio of global high yield bonds.
Short Duration Global High Yield
This strategy follows similar approach to its Global High Yield cousin but focuses on bonds with a maturity of five years or less and duration of three years or less.
This strategy seeks to maximise total return while generating a high level of income through investment in a diversified portfolio of fixed interest securities.
High yield bonds typically have low to moderate levels of correlation to other asset classes, thereby providing a valuable source of diversification within a portfolio of balanced assets.
Equity-like returns with less volatility
Over the past 25 years, high yield bonds have delivered similar returns to equities, but with almost half the volatility.
High yield bonds represent a rare source of competitive income at a time when yields are abnormally low.
The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.
Bond values are affected by changes in interest rates and the bond issuer's creditworthiness. Bonds that offer the potential for a higher income typically have a greater risk of default.
Derivatives may be used in the portfolios; these can be complex and highly volatile. This means in unusual market conditions the fund may suffer significant losses.
The funds may invest in other funds; this means the overall fund charges may be higher.
Certain assets held in the funds could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.
Convertible bonds can earn less income than comparable debt securities and less growth than comparable equity securities, and carry a high level of risk.
