Euro Government Bonds

Euro Government Bonds

Applying an active and flexible approach to euro government bonds

Key points:

  • Active country allocation and decisive position taking 
  • Diversified performance drivers: country allocation, active duration, yield curve positioning 
  • ESG factors are incorporated into the investment process and country allocation decisions


We pursue a structured investment approach with a focus on macro-economic fundamentals and policy, valuation and positioning. The way we allocate our risk budget to the different performance drivers will vary in order to ensure we manage the main risks and exploit the major opportunities. We aim for diversification in active investment decisions: over performance drivers and investment horizons.


The Euro Government Bonds strategy invests in euro denominated bonds issued by the EMU countries. It employs an investment process combining top-down and bottom-up elements. Fundamental analysis is performed on each of the three performance drivers: country allocation, duration management and yield curve positioning. Country ESG scores are part of our bottom-up analysis.
