UBP launches investment grade strategy
Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) has further expanded its euro fixed-income offering with the launch of investment-grade strategy: UBAM – High Grade Euro Income.
This new fund is managed using the same approach developed by UBP’s Global & Absolute Return Fixed Income team for high-yield portfolios. It combines a top-down macro allocation with liquid positions in interest rates and credit securities to provide optimised exposure to euro investment-grade markets.
With this strategy UBP will offer investors innovative solutions to optimise the risk/reward profile of their euro fixed-income portfolios in a negative rate environment. It complements UBP’s existing range of benchmarked and absolute-return strategies that are actively managed by the Fixed Income team.
Michaël Lok, co-CEO of Asset Management, commented: “This new fund is particularly attractive for investors as part of their wider asset-allocation considerations, and our liquidity-focused macro approach is a perfect fit with the euro investment-grade market. The launch illustrates the ability of our Global & Absolute Return Fixed Income team to offer clients genuine outperformance potential.”
The fund is currently available to investors in Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
