Unigestion launches private debt allocator
Geneva-headquartered asset manager Unigestion has launched a private debt allocator tool which aims to help clients identify private debt opportunities matching their investment objectives.
The firm assesses that depending on the type of debt, “it can yield returns for investors of anything between 5% and 20%.”
The private debt allocator is “constantly fed” with private debt opportunities provided by Unigestion.
Investment opportunities that have played out will be removed, existing opportunities updated and new ones added.
The tool also makes portfolio adjustments easier over time as investment cycles move, new ideas emerge and investors’ objectives change.
Hanspeter Bader, managing director and head of Private Assets at Unigestion, commented : “Private debt has long been a valuable component of an investment portfolio but the perceived complexity around its investment process has proved a barrier for our clients in the past.
“Our private debt allocator tool helps simplify this process by identifying the range of characteristics of each private debt investment opportunity, allowing us to match our investors with the right opportunities.”
In September 2014, the institutional asset manager has also launched a private asset allocator tool.
Unigestion currently posts €16.6bn of assets under management.
