The fund’s interest-rate risk is around 40% lower than that of the broad US corporate credit market. This is one of the fund’s defining features, and could make it of particular interest to investors in this low-yield environment.
The fund consists of a core portfolio that invests primarily in US dollar-denominated credit issued by a diverse range of financial and non-financial companies. Managing the portfolio’s credit exposure relative to the market (its beta) is based on a top-down approach, while companies are selected using a bottom-up, fundamental process.
