Investment grade sub financials

Diversified exposure to the bonds of banks and insurers in different parts of the capital structure

Key points:

  • Banking and insurance sector investment case is strongly supported by improving capital ratios 
  • Dedicated team of portfolio managers and analysts selects the most attractive issuers 
  • ESG research is integrated into the investment process to help assess the downside risk

Philosophy

The case for financial bonds is highly compelling as a result of the Basel III capital adequacy regulations for banks and Solvency II rules for insurers. Traditional subordinated bonds and new types of capital – particularly hybrid instruments – offer attractive investment opportunities as these instruments tend to have significantly higher spreads than senior debt.

Process

In our research process we combine a top-down market view to assess credit attractiveness and factors that drive credit markets in the short term with skillful issuer selection to create a broadly diversified portfolio. In this respect, avoiding losers is more important than picking winners. The portfolio manager takes country risks actively into consideration in choosing where to invest.
