Swiss Boutique Fisch Asset Management has announced the launch of a new Emerging Market bond fund, offering institutional investors access to convertible- and corporate bonds.
The new fund will invest in hard currency investment grade and high yield bonds, it is available to investors in USD, EUR and CHF tranches, with currency risks being hedged in all tranches.
Hannes Boller, manager of the FISCH Bond EM Corporate Opportunistic Fund comments on the launch: “The broad investment horizon offers ideal diversification in a market, which is compared to Europe and the US still characterised by relatively high risk premiums.”
“Although the launch of the fund occurred independently of the Brexit referendum, but the resulting level of uncertainty highlights why it is worth considering Emerging Markets in order to attain broader risk diversification” he adds.
The fund is currently registered for distribution in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Luxembourg.
