NB’s Milner to bring credit strategy to Milan event
Norman Milner, portfolio manager of the Neuberger Berman Global Credit Long Short fund at Neuberger Berman, will discuss how to adjust credit strategies to the current market conditions at the InvestmentEurope‘s Fund Selector Forum Italy 2015 in Milan.
In his presentation entitled “Credit Markets: New Times Demand New Tools”, Milner will highlight how for years leveraged long-duration and credit has been one of the best beta trades in the markets.
“Now, however, the ultra-loose monetary policy that supported this trend appears to be turning.
“Default expectations remain low and credit remains attractive, but investors now need to be more creative to control their risk and uncover opportunity,” the manager will say.
Milner, Managing Director, joined the firm in 2015. He is a portfolio manager and co-head of the Global Credit Long/Short Team. Most recently he was a co-founder and portfolio manager of Orchard Square Partners, where he had research coverage responsibility for emerging markets and sovereign credits.
