Mirabaud launches ‘Global High Yield Bonds’ fund
Mirabaud Asset Management has launched a Global High Yield Bonds fund with assets in excess of $125m, as a sub fund of the Mirabaud Luxembourg Sicav.
The high yield bond fund aims to outperform the high yield universe and generate an attractive total return through a combination of income and capital gains over a full investment cycle by investing primarily in global high yield corporate issuers.
The fund will be managed by Andrew Lake (pictured), who joined Mirabaud from Aviva at the end of last year, with an approach driven by active management and security selection, incorporating both top-down and bottom-up analysis.
Lake said the flexible approach aims to seek out and exploit relative value opportunities across markets, sectors and individual companies, encompassed by a thorough analysis and ongoing monitoring of risk by the various high yield specialists across Mirabaud.
Mirabaud has been developing its range of funds, building on its competitive advantages. The formation of the high yield team and the launch of the fund are part of this strategy.
With operations in London, Paris, Montreal, Barcelona, Zurich and Geneva, the Mirabaud Group’s asset management division focuses on investment management and advisory services. In the past year it has expanded its asset management team in London and launched a global emerging markets equity fund, as well as a dynamic allocation fund.
