Schroders has launched four funds in Italy to develop its offering in the emerging markets bond space.
Italian investors will be now able to access Schroders International Selection Fund (ISF) SICAV Emerging Market Bond, Schroder ISF Emerging Market Corporate Bond and Schroder ISF Emerging Market Sovereign Bond.
Schroders Emerging Markets Bond invests primarily into ISF Emerging Markets Debt Absolute Return, whose investment objective is to provide a return of capital growth and income primarily through investment in a portfolio of bonds and other fixed and floating rate securities issued by governments and corporates in emerging markets.
The funds are managed by the team ‘Emerging markets debt relative’, based in New York and Singapore.
Meanwhile, the asset manager has launched the Schroders ISF RMB Fixed Income, investing in Chinese renminbi investment grade products, including government and corporate fixed income.
The fund is managed by Rajeev De Mello, head of Asian fixed income, and by Angus Hui, Asian fixed income fund manager.
“We are closing the year confirming our commitment to the market, where we aim at offering investment solutions in line with markets evolution. Our aim is to offer our clients the opportunity to take profit from the growth in emerging markets,” said Luca Tenani (pictured), head of Italy’s distribution.
