The TwentyFour Dynamic Bond is viewed as a ‘best-in-class’ strategy within Flexible/ Strategic Bonds based on the pedigree of the investment team and their expertise of the European credit markets which they have helped to shape over the past 25 years. The team is formed by former proprietary traders, sales traders and market makers at most of the large/ bulge bracket banks in Europe. They are able to invest across fixed income markets, with the managers tactically adjusting the portfolio across high yield, investment grade, government bonds, asset-backed securities and cash with an aim to ensure fixed income exposure is best positioned given the prevailing market conditions and outlook. The flexibility of this approach enables the managers of the Fund to quickly adjust the allocation within fixed income to take advantage of opportunities.
We like the team based approach used to manage this fund and the fact that the lead managers are pioneers of creating and investing in credit markets. It gives them a deeper understanding with detailed knowledge of the micro structure and macro forces that affect their markets. Each member of the team has their own specialisms which sees different investment ideas being brought to the fund.
