Harnessing the power of active credit investing

Kempen Euro Sustainable Credit Stategy

Generating sustainable Alpha in credit markets

Our objective is two-fold: generating steady alpha for our clients, whilst protecting against the downside. With a 15-year history of investing in European corporate credit, our philosophy and process have allowed us to do just that, and we have consistently outperformed the benchmark. Combining our team-based approach with active management and a deep analysis of sustainability, we are focused on generating superior returns, without taking on excessive risk. 

Control and discipline

Generally speaking more control results in fewer surprises on the road, in sport, in life generally and so too in investing - For this reason control is one of the core drivers of our approach to investing in our sustainable euro credit strategy. We describe this as ‘Alpha by control’.

While we recognize that credit markets can be inefficient, we also believe that this creates interesting opportunities – so long as the right controls are in place.

Webinar: ‘Alpha by control’ – it’s a team game

Tuesday 20 June, 10:00 CET

Credit markets are notoriously unpredictable and delivering a steady investment journey over the long-term is a challenge for every credit investor. We tackle this using a distinctive investment approach we call ‘Alpha by Control’. While we actively seek out opportunities to deliver alpha, our approach is also optimised to control risks. We do this while making impact and integrating sustainability via engagements. 

During the webinar we will cover:
- How broad oversight and ownership across the full team delivers superior results
- Fundamental benefits of our distinctive top down and bottom up selection processes
- The positive impact of investing in sustainable businesses
