Strategy Overview

Longchamp Hybrid Credit 2028, is a EUR fixed maturity fund which invests in a static portfolio of bonds. The “buy and hold approach” is implemented by investing at inception in a concentrated portfolio of carefully selected Corporate Hybrid Bonds

The Fund’s holdings will be Corporate Hybrid Securities issued by blue-chip European issuers :

  • Corporate Hybrid Debt is a segment of the credit market that currently offers extremely attractive risk-adjusted yields
  • The market is currently dislocated and offers one the best entry points ever with a combination of historically wide spreads and the highest EUR rates in over 10 years
  • Issuers include Investment Grade rated European National Champions such as EDF, Total Energies, Eni, Repsol, Veolia

Cash flows at the fund level will be progressively returned to Investors :

  • Revenues : Accumulated coupons will be returned yearly on the annual payment date
  • Capital : Upon each bond redemption, the capital will be returned on the capital redemption date
  • Over the last 6 months of 2028, the remaining portfolio of bonds with an expected maturity 2028 or longer, will be sold progressively for a full return of capital no later than December 2028

The Target total return for investors will be 6-7% per annum net of fees.

Longchamp has chosen to structure the fund as an Actively Managed Certificate (“AMC”), issued by BNP Paribas. Actively Managed Certificate constitutes an extremely efficient vehicle in terms of time to market and implementation costs.
