Longchamp Solferino Credit Fund
The objective of the Longchamp Solferino Credit Fund (the “Sub-Fund”) is to deliver an annualized performance net of fees higher than that of the €STR capitalized + 8.5bps + 2% over a recommended investment period of 2 years minimum.
The investment strategy is focused on the European bond markets with a “Value” approach, that is to say an approach aiming to identify and invest in securities which the Investment Manager estimates are undervalued and presenting, based on its analysis, attractive characteristics in terms of yield and potential for capital gains. This bottom-up approach is also combined with macro analysis aimed at determining the portfolio’s positioning over the course of the credit cycle and establishing a “top-down” view of the portfolio’s risk level.
The combination of these two “top-down” and “bottom-up” approaches gives the Investment Manager the flexibility to considerably reduce its credit exposure in the absence of conviction opportunities and to then allocate to defensive supports such as sovereign bonds.
- Apply a Private Market approach to listed Credit Market with a disciplined value approach Buy as if you held to maturity
- Leverage the unique total return opportunities from tradable credit actively monetize gains of re pricing of risk and exit fundamental underperformers
- High Conviction approach with a concentrated portfolio (25-35 positions with 3%-7% weighting)
- High Yield returns (7%-10%) with Investment Grade volatility (3%-6%)
- Attractive Sharpe Ratio Target (1.5 +) in line with what has been historically accomplished Aim to minimize drawdowns at 5%. Volatility should be limited in most market environments except in deep financial crisis
- Issuers domiciled mainly in Europe
