BlueBay Capital Income Fund

Key documents


    The BlueBay Capital Income Fund is designed to invest in subordinated debt securities issued by financial and non-financial issuers, combined with environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.

    Fund ESG characteristics

    The Fund does not reference any benchmark and its objective is to achieve a total return from a portfolio of subordinated debt securities.

    Due to the complexity of the loss absorbing mechanisms and the absence of harmonized terms from issuer to issuer and from issue to issue of Contingent Convertibles, the BlueBay Financial Capital Income Fund is only suitable for Financially Sophisticated Investors who can bear the economic risk of the loss of their investment in the fund.

    Financially Sophisticated Investor for this purpose means an investor who:

    1. has knowledge of, and investment experience in, financial markets generally and financial products which invest in securities and/or derivatives with complex features; and
    2. understands and can evaluate the strategy, characteristics and risks of the strategy in order to make an informed investment decision


    This is a marketing communication. There are several risks associated with investing in this product. Please refer to the prospectus of the fund and to the KIID available on this website before making any final investment decisions.
