Multi-strategy manager CQS has launched the Global Convertible Bond fund as it seeks to expand into offering products via its new Ireland based Ucits platform.

The fund will invest in bonds globally, with a target of holding some 50-70 positions, and targeting annual return of 6%-8% with volatility in the 5%-7% range.

James Peattie, head of Long Only Convertibles will manage the fund. He has some 30 years of experience in the convertibles market, but will be supported by a team of other portfolio manager, analysts and traders.

Peattie said: “The excellent long term risk-adjusted returns delivered by convertibles makes them a valuable asset class for long term investment. The current investment opportunity set is strong, with a healthy new issue market and a good range of idiosyncratic opportunities. We believe that this new fund is well placed to meet the needs of investors who are increasingly seeking exposure to effective strategies via regulated Ucits vehicles.”
