We believe that investing in a short-dated approach to high yield can offer a number of benefits over an all-maturity benchmark-related approach. Credit curves in high yield can be flat as issuers typically receive a single rating regardless of the maturity of the debt. In our experience, this often results in impressive value in short-dated issues. A portfolio can deliver lower interest rate risk, lower volatility and better liquidity.

Investors can access our high yield capabilities on a segregated basis.

Our high yield fund management team aims to provide investors with consistent risk-adjusted returns by investing across a wide range of opportunities. With a rigorous and disciplined process that prioritises credit analysis and pinpointing value, the team's experience and expertise in analyzing companies globally means we can provide capabilities across the full spectrum of the asset class.


Credit analysis: we believe that when investing in high yield, the most important consideration is diligent credit analysis. Our team of specialist credit analysis enforces a rigorous, value-based approach.

Focus on short-dated markets: we focus on short-dated high yield to help take advantage of greater certainty of outcome and relatively large premium for short-dated issues.

Diversification: our expertise spans the full global high yield market helping us to maximise the benefits of diversfication.

Important information

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.

Please refer to the prospectus, for the specific risks associated with the fund.

Where high yield instruments are held, their low credit rating indicates a greater risk of default, which would affect the value of the portfolio.
