Euro High Yield

Euro-denominated corporate credits that have a BB rating


We invest primarily in Euro-denominated corporate credits that have a BB rating, alongside subordinated bonds with the aim of earning attractive total return (income and capital appreciation) over the long term.


In our view:
  • the European high-yield market contains mispricings which can be identified and traded and is now deep enough and broad to offer scope for diversified investment;
  • the higher-quality segment of the market offers the most attractive risk-adjusted returns; and
  • an active investment and risk management approach, which integrates ESG, is best placed to secure attractive yields for investors, as well as create and preserve additional value by capitalising on market mispricings.


Our experienced team follows a systematic process that blends quantitative and qualitive expertise and experience and seeks to:
  • combine investments primarily in the BB market segment with attractive risk-return potential with subordinated bonds offering high-yield spreads for investment-grade credit profiles;
  • apply an active top-down and bottom-up approach to macro and fundamentals analysis to construct and risk manage a diversified portfolio of credits; and
  • integrate ESG considerations throughout the investment lifecycle.

    Capital at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
