Global credit

Investing in global credit can offer a number of potential benefits over a regional allocation to credit. Global credit can provide far broader additional diversification as well increased potential to take advantage of market inefficiencies, with returns hedged to an investor's domestic currency.

Investors can access our global credit capabilities via the BNY Mellon Global Credit Fund, or on a segregated basis.

Our global credit investment team aims to provide investors with consistent risk-adjusted returns from corporate bonds and invests across a wide range of credit opportunities. With a rigorous and disciplined investment process, the team's experience and expertise in analysing companies and other issues globally means we can provide capabilities across the full spectrum of the asset class.


Diversification: Investible universe across the full global spectrum of credit markets, aiming to reduce the effects of idiosyncratic credit risks, regional sectoral biases and rising political risks across the globe.
