The Muzinich Asia Credit Opportunities strategy invests in a blend of sectors and Asian countries. The strategy typically features contained volatility and aims to offer attractive yield with the premise of capturing opportunities in Asian investment grade corporate bonds, which has been a growing universe for the last five years.
The strategy also invests in high yield corporate bonds, but maintains an investment grade average rating at all times. It focuses on companies that are well positioned in their markets with strong long-term business prospects and a sound management team. Despite not necessarily being renowned outside of Asia, these companies are of a significant scale and are Asian household names.
We believe that the Asian corporate bond market offers abundant opportunities, as it is an under-researched market. Therefore, our focused, experienced and culturally integrated investment team can provide investors with an opportunity to gain exposure to a well-diversified region, which we believe can offer steady growth and solid balance sheets.
