BlueBay Global Convertible Bond Fund

Key documents


    The BlueBay Global Convertible Bond Fund is designed to invest in convertible securities from global issuers, combined with environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.

    Sustainability-related disclosure

    The Fund's objective is to achieve a total return in excess of the Refinitiv Global Convertible Focus Index USD from a portfolio of convertible securities. There are no restrictions on the extent to which the Fund's portfolio and performance may deviate from the ones of the benchmark. As part of the investment process, the Investment Manager has full discretion over the composition of the Fund's portfolio and may take exposure to companies, countries or sectors not included in the benchmark.

    The Fund’s benchmark (Refinitiv Global Convertible Focus Index USD) does not implement any of the ESG specific considerations which apply to the fund and is therefore used for performance comparison only.

    Investment approach

    • A team-driven approach drawing on our proprietary convertible bond analysis, in-house macro expertise and portfolio construction experience
    • Our dedicated fundamental analysis underpins security selection and is based on dynamic, proactive, proprietary research where we exploit capital appreciation opportunities through sector and issuer analysis
    • The team adopts a benchmark-agnostic view and employs relative value techniques to evaluate the merits of each potential holding

    Market opportunity

    Convertible bonds combine the attributes of both bonds and equities
    We view the asset class as a compelling and less volatile alternative to direct equity exposure
    The more defensive bond-like attributes of convertibles coupled with the potential equity upside participation can provide an attractive risk-return profile for investors
