Eurizon SLJ Aggregate Bond
RMB (Renminbi) Strategy

A new safe-haven asset class?

The Eurizon SLJ Aggregate Bond RMB (Renminbi) Strategy offers exposure to the world’s second largest bond market. It invests in a diversified set of Renminbi-denominated debt instruments traded on the China Interbank Bond Market or in other regulated markets in China and Hong Kong.

Overview

• We focus on the most liquid and highly rated bonds in our universe. Our risk aware approach aims to deliver growth over the medium to long term.

• Our diverse team have a deep understanding of the culture, policies and market they invest in. All team members, whilst based in London, are Mandarin speakers having lived and worked in China.

• We have a research led approach which is based on our original macroeconomic research. Our understanding of economic mega trends, currencies and the place China has in global markets is complimented by our active bottom up analysis.

Investment Approach

Our process blends a top-down global macro perspective, with a tactical, bottom-up approach that selects better risk-reward portfolio constituents within the universe that fits the global macro views.

Our research aims to identify those global factors across currency, business and policy cycles that we believe are the major determinants for the Emerging Markets risk appetite, which ultimately define the appropriate relative exposure in terms of global duration and FX exposure for the strategy. The portfolio construction is based on a 3-pillars approach.
