Martin Haycock of Fisch covers convertibles at Oslo Roundtable

Martin Haycock, senior product manager, Fisch Fund Services, will outline the case for convertibles when he takes part in the Oslo Roundtable 2018, taking place 7 June at the Grand Hotel in the Norwegian capital.

In a rising rates environment, the case for convertibles is compelling, Haycock argues: they give exposure to upside in stock markets with a more defensive profile than equities. Meanwhile, the embedded equity option reduces exposure to interest rate risk relative to corporate bonds. In his session, convertible bond characteristics, performance and the rationale for issuance will be explored in the context of the current market environment.

Haycock is a member of the Investment Office at Fisch. He supports the Convertible Bond portfolio management team as a senior Convertible Bond specialist, leveraging broad experience of the convertible bond asset class. Before joining Fisch Asset Management in 2015, he worked at UBS for 20 years. Upon joining UBS in 1995, he spent six years as a member of the convertible bond origination team. In 2001 he was appointed head of convertible bond research and thereafter head of convertible bond marketing.

In 2012, Haycock was appointed global head of the newly-formed UBS Index Group. He also served as global COO for the cash equities business, and in 2014 led the sale of the UBS Convertible Indices to Thomson Reuters. He holds an MA and BA (Hons) in Land Economy from Cambridge University.
