Absolute Return – European Credit Alpha

Our European Credit Alpha strategy aims to generate in our opinion attractive returns across varied market conditions, with a focus on European High Yield investments, as well as using an array of hedging tools to help provide downside mitigation. We believe a dynamic strategy that combines long and short positions across a broad investment universe offers the potential for positivelpha generation. The goal of the strategy is to capture the upside of the European High Yield market but with enhanced downside protection.

This long/short, total-return credit strategy focuses on investments across European credit markets seeking to make strong conviction trades. The strategy is based around three main portfolios: Core Long, Arbitrage and Overlay. The strategy has the ability to use a diverse range of instruments including cash instruments (bullet or callable bonds), floating and fixed- rate instruments, senior, subordinated and hybrid debt, loans and derivatives.

Capital at risk. The value of investments and the income from them may fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not an indication of current or future performance.
