Traditionally, most credit investors have been focused on public bond markets – which are a major channel for financing corporates and consumers’ debt – but only represent a limited part of the credit universe.
Structural changes in the credit market have opened up new opportunities for investors to broaden their credit allocation beyond traditional bond investing.
Our agile approach helps us quickly adapt to the risk and return needs of our clients. And our conviction-led approach to portfolio construction means our team can offer tailored investment solutions for each type of asset class.
Global secured finance
Secured finance solutions offer investors the potential for much-needed yield, predictable cashflows and diversification benefits.
