Jun 30 15
Schroders plc has announced the launch of Schroder GAIA BSP Credit, an externally managed fund on its GAIA platform. The fund is a fundamental credit long-short strategy that applies a bottom-up approach, combining deep credit analysis, sophisticated structuring and active trading to maximise expected returns while limiting downside risk. Investing primarily in global high yield corporate credit with a focus in the US, the fund will aim to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns in both up and down markets and provide investors with an absolute return of 5-7% per annum. With reduced exposure to directional market trends and a lack of correlation to various indices, the fund will be positioned to maximise downside protection and outperform during market selloffs.
