Head of Europe IG & HY Credit

Presentation: How to extract positive return in the European bond markets?

Recent times have created an investment world that is beginning to display signs of nervousness over inflation and rising interest rates. In this environment, we believe being decorrelated from the mass markets, through an unconstrained management of the duration and credit risk will be key in the coming quarters to deliver positive total return.
Join us at the Trend Investment Summit to discover our active total return strategy providing decorrelated returns on the fixed income asset class.
