Generali Investments has announced the launch of the GIS Absolute Return Convertible Fund, the fund has a global universe but focuses on European convertibles.
The launch follows that of the Generali Investments SRI Ageing Fund released yesterday. Andrea Favaloro, head of Sales & Marketing at Generali Investments, said: “The two new funds demonstrate our commitment to executing this plan taking advantage of some of our most outstanding capabilities, including our credit research, macro research, SRI analysis and stock-picking.”
The Ucits compliant convertible fund will be managed by Generali’s convertible bonds investment team, which currently manages €950m.
The team is headed by Brice Perin, lead portfolio manager, who has over 16 years of experience in asset management and convertible bonds, among others at Acropole AM and La Française.
