The Royal London Duration Hedged Credit fund predominantly invests in investment grade sterling credit bonds,. In line with other fixed incomes strategies at RLAM, the fund attempts to take advantage of the inefficiencies within the sterling credit market and seeks to identify mispriced credit risk. However, unlike other funds, this strategy also attempts to mitigate the negative impact on performance from an increase in interest rates.
Paola and Shalin are supported by a team of ten credit specialists, which is an essential resource and enables the fund to add value through credit selection. Within the credit universe, the fund is more focused on secured debt, which highlights the conservative nature of the strategy.
