Investing worldwide

A global approach to exploit the globalisation of the high yield market.

Across the capital structure

By searching the capital structures of issuers for securities, we seek bonds and derivatives with superior relative value.

Selecting securities, not just issuers

Identifying outperforming securities is more important than picking issuers that simply pay back.

Experienced team

A skilled, integrated team whose principal members have worked together since 2004.

Investment approach

We believe that global, relative-value investing throughout the capital structures of issuers can deliver strong returns through the cycle.

Through top-down analysis, we determine our risk appetite and the return prospects of different regions and sectors. These findings direct our disciplined, bottom-up research, in which we seek exposure to issuers with attractive credit risks and aim to determine which securities in their capital structures provide superior relative value.

Our global approach, in which we invest throughout the US, Europe and the emerging markets, provides us with access to an expansive set of opportunities and sources of liquidity.

Investment process

We believe that global, relative-value investing throughout the capital structures of issuers can deliver strong returns through the cycle.

This requires a broad mandate. By investing worldwide, we are exposed to more opportunities to exploit differences in valuation and potential return, and can better manage liquidity risk. Our top-down analysis assesses the return prospects of different regions and sectors, and informs our bottom-up research of companies. We aim to identify attractive issuers and, crucially, determine which bonds and credit-default swaps in their capital structures provide superior relative value.
