Columbia Threadneedle Investments launches global absolute return credit strategy

Columbia Threadneedle Investments has launched Threadneedle (Lux) Global Investment Grade Credit Opportunities Fund

Columbia Threadneedle Investments has unveiled its global absolute return credit strategy termed Threadneedle (Lux) Global Investment Grade Credit Opportunities Fund. It is an active absolute return credit strategy investment primarily aimed at delivering positive cash-plus returns for global investment grade markets. It follows the investment approach taken in the successful Threadneedle Credit Opportunities Fund.

The fund is managed by portfolio managers Ryan Staszewski and Alasdair Ross. While Ross is the last head of Investment Grade Credit EMEA, and one of the portfolio managers’ team responsible for the Threadneedle Credit Opportunities Fund, Staszewski is a senior investment grade portfolio manager based in London and one of the lead managers of Columbia Threadneedle’s UK and European Strategic bond portfolios.

Head of Investment Grade, EMEA at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, Ross said that their approach to managing credit strategies is grounded in intensive fundamental research and has enabled the team to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns through the cycle. The firm’s approach is validated by a long and successful track record of producing strong risk-adjusted returns in traditional long-only and absolute return credit strategies. The Investment Grade section of the Threadneedle Credit Opportunities fund has delivered over half of this fund’s performance since its inception over eight years ago.

Investment Grade portfolio manager, Ryan Staszewski added that the investment team of analysts and portfolio managers work together in a collaborative and interactive environment that allows the best ideas to emerge.

He added that their global investment grade research team of 13 is resourced to provide a balance between detailed due diligence of issuers and clear vision of market and industry sector trends. With considerable average industry experience, these analysts have developed expertise though a number of economic and credit cycles.
