Credit opportunities

Our fully-flexible long-short credit strategy aims to provide attractive, positive absolute returns in all market conditions and is able to invest across investment grade and sub-investment grade.


Alpha-seeking credit: the strategy aims to generate returns from across the credit spectrum, targeting a large proportion of returns from alpha, rather than being reliant on market returns.

'Best ideas' portfolio construction: the strategy combines Insight's robust fixed income investment process with a multi-strategy, long-short investment approach to credit.

Unconstrained: the performance of the strategy is measured against cash, rather than an index benchmark, therefore the portfolio managers can focus on the areas of the market where they feel value can be added. The strategy is not constrained by an index relative approach.

Flexible, transparent: the strategy seeks to combine transparency and liquidity with flexibility and derivative strategies.

Robust process and risk controls: the strategy's managers follow an established investment process which is monitored and overseen by an independent risk team.

Experienced, well-resourced team: the strategy is managed by an experienced team with what we believe is an excellent long-term track record, who are supported by investment professionals across Insight's Fixed Income Group.
