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.
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.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
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 strategies may invest in other strategies; this means the overall strategy charges may be higher.
Certain assets held in the strategies 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.
