Absolute return credit strategy
Our fully flexible long-short absolute return 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 credit.
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 Fund is not constrained by an index relative approach.
Flexible and 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 supported by investment professionals across Insight's Fixed Income Group.
The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may be partly due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
Investments in bonds are affected by interest rates and inflation. For a full list of applicable risks, and before investing, investors should refer to the Prospectus or other offering documents.
Derivatives may be used to generate returns as well as to reduce costs and/or the overall risk of the portfolio. Using derivatives can involve a higher level of risk. A small movement in the price of an underlying investment may result in a disproportionately large movement in the price of the derivative investment.
Where high yield instruments are held, their low credit rating indicates a greater risk of default, which would affect the value of the portfolio.
The issuer of a debt security may not pay income or repay capital to the bondholder when due.
The investment manager may invest in instruments which can be difficult to sell when markets are stressed.
While efforts will be made to eliminate potential inequalities between shareholders in a pooled fund through the performance fee calculation methodology, there may be occasions where a shareholder may pay a performance fee for which they have not received a commensurate benefit.
