UBP offers a selected range of emerging market fixed income long-only and unconstrained strategies across corporate, sustainable corporate and sovereign bonds.
Our active management relies on thorough, in-house macroeconomic and credit research and combines top-down allocation and bottom-up selection, which constitutes, in our view, a powerful investment approach to uncover and take advantage of the attractive investment opportunities offered by this under-researched asset class.
We complete our offering with a dedicated sustainable corporate bond strategy. In addition, our team of emerging market fixed income experts pays particular attention to diversification, liquidity, and risk management.
Our emerging market fixed income investment philosophy focuses on creating long-term value for our investors. In order to achieve that, we aim to identify investment opportunities across the entire investment cycle within corporate, sustainable corporate and sovereign bonds* in hard and local currency. Our robust and transparent investment process has proven able to deliver strong risk-adjusted performance over time.
Decisions are based on rigorous in-house fundamental research using quantitative and qualitative analysis and applying due diligence to all relevant risk factors, combined with external ESG research for our sustainable fund. In addition, we put high emphasis on diversification, liquidity and risk management.
