    Hermes Investment Management, the £33.6 billion manager, has today added to its global fixed income product offering with the launch of the Hermes Unconstrained Credit Fund. The UCITS Fund, seeded by cornerstone investors including Quilter Multi-Asset, has investor commitments of £185m and aims to offer a high-conviction, multi-sector credit solution that is structured to perform throughout market cycles. The investment process combines top-down allocation across the global liquid-credit spectrum with bottom-up, high-conviction security selection. This is complemented by an options overlay to manage risks within the prevailing market environment. Andrew Jackson, Head of Fixed Income, and Fraser Lundie, Co-Head of Credit and Lead Credit Portfolio Manager, will manage the Fund and look to exploit opportunities throughout the global liquid credit spectrum in investment-grade and high-yield bonds, loans, credit-default swaps, asset-backed securities and other credit derivatives. Through assessing credit risk appetite across liquid-credit markets, the Multi-Asset Credit Investment Committee will provide allocation guidance, with bottom-up credit selection, implemented following intensive fundamental credit analysis that includes pricing in ESG risks. The options overlay will hedge high-conviction positions by mitigating the impact of any broad-based material deterioration in credit markets.
