Eurizon to bring absolute return to Milan event
Paolo Bernardelli, head of Fixed Income and Forex at Eurizon Capital will join InvestmentEurope‘s Fund Selector Bond Focus Milan to discuss an absolute return approach to fixed income investing.
Bernardelli’s presentation will be introduced by Alessandro Pozzi, head of Retail & Wholesale Distribution.
“Yields are very low in euro Government Bonds, both core and peripheral, while value can be found in Corporate, HY and Emerging Markets. Central Banks, all extremely supportive up to now, are starting to diverge in their monetary policies.
“Today’s challenge is to deliver positive returns while protecting the gains generated over two positive decades by fixed income portfolios on the global bond market.
“Eurizon Capital proposes a solution featuring ample investment flexibility across rates, credit, and currency markets, adopting a proprietary risk budget model that guarantees a strict risk control of the portfolio,” Bernardelli will say.
Bernardelli is head of Fixed Income & FX at Eurizon Capital SGR and head of Fixed Income at Eurizon Capital S.A.. He joined Sanpaolo Asset Management SGR (now, Eurizon Capital SGR) in 1995 as head of Domestic Bond Funds.
Previously, he held several positions as analyst and financial trader for Sanpaolo Finance Merchant Bank and was later appointed head of Arbitrage and head of Trading for Sanpaolo Finance Promotio Sim.
He began his career in Banca Commerciale Italiana, where he worked on Budget and Financial Analysis, collaborating also with ABI and with Centrale dei Bilanci of Turin.
Prior to joining Eurizon Capital, Pozzi worked with Pioneer Investments for over four years and, from 2000 to 2004 in the Asset Management Department of UniCredit Group, specialized in investment products and service models for Affluent and Private clients. He began his career as Private Banker for Banca Intesa.
