Nomura Funds Ireland – Asia High Yield Bond Fund
Our Asian High Yield Bond fund aims to maximise total return consisting of current income and capital appreciation by primarily investing in high yielding fixed income or debt securities issued by Asian corporations, financial institutions, governments and their agencies. The Nomura Asian High Yield Bond fund is managed by Simon Tan, CFA, from our Singapore office.
Our Investment Approach
Our process incorporates both top-down and bottom-up investment perspectives with the aim of achieving superior risk adjusted performance.
Leverages the resources and expertise of the Group’s global fixed income teams, local investment professionals based across Asia and our Group Economists & Strategists.
Our Portfolio Managers and Analysts have extensive experience in seeking relative value across sectors. They look at all debt along the capital structure as well as where the debt of other similarly situated companies trade in the market.
This fund offers diversification given its relatively low correlation to global bond markets. The market is expected to continue to benefit from global investors seeking alternatives from traditional global fixed income instruments.
Potential significant risks
The fund is exposed to credit risk, especially in the Asian Region, as well interest rate risk based on the US-Treasury curve. In addition, liquidity risk cannot be avoided in High yield markets, though it is closely monitored.
The fund aims to maximise total returns, consisting of current income and capital appreciation by primarily investing in high yielding fixed income or debt securities issued by Asian corporations, financial institutions, governments and their agencies.
