Investment Director, Multi-Asset & Macro
Presentation: Convertible bonds in an absolute return context
Investors find themselves in an environment of ultra-low bond yields alongside stretched valuations across broad equity and credit markets; they may therefore have to accept and tolerate a higher level of risk than historically to generate a similar level of return.
The Aviva Investors Global Convertibles Absolute Return Fund seeks to generate absolute returns regardless of market direction whilst providing high diversification potential with low correlations to traditional asset classes.
