BlueBay Asset Management Launches Multi-Asset Income Fund

Nov 7 2017 | 10:08pm ET

Fixed income specialist BlueBay Asset Management has debuted a new UCITS-compliant multi-asset income fund aimed at low turnover and minimal drawdowns.

The new fund, named the BlueBay Global Income Fund, was launched in response to client demand, the company said. It seeks to provide an attractive income stream via a low turnover portfolio of bonds and targets a consistent level of credit risk. It will invest in bonds from across sovereigns and corporates, developed and emerging markets.

Managers on the new vehicle are Blair Reid, Mark Dowding and Raphael Robelin. BlueBay believes the fund will appeal to both institutional investors seeking an income to support their liability matching and wealth managers looking for an asset class agnostic approach to generating income to support core portfolios. 

BlueBay’s first income portfolio launched in 2011 and currently manages $1.3 billion primarily for the North American market. 

Headquartered in London, BlueBay provides a broad range of relative return, total return and alternative investment portfolios in both public and private debt markets. It is one of Europe’s largest specialist active managers of fixed income, managing more than $57 billion as of 30 September 2017 for institutional investors and financial institutions.
