Global Active Credit Strategy
Pacific Coolabah Global Active Credit Fund
Focus on “alpha” generation in liquid, high-grade credit
We are excited to announce the launch of the Pacific Coolabah Global Active Credit Fund, a liquid investment grade credit fund aiming to outperform global corporate bond markets, in partnership with Pacific Asset Management, a London-based asset manager.
Coolabah’s investment team combines a proprietary quantitative asset-selection approach with deep fundamental research, aiming to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns whilst maintaining a consistently high-quality credit portfolio.
The Pacific Coolabah Global Active Credit Fund will invest based on three major investment principles: generating alpha from inefficiencies in liquid high-grade bonds markets; minimising idiosyncratic credit risk; and maintaining a focus on quantitative & technical dislocations.
Stewardship is central to the fund manager’s approach, emphasising a commitment to effect real change. A dedicated six-person credit research team has joint responsibility for proprietary ESG research and portfolio integration.
The fund’s reference benchmark is the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Corporate Currency Hedged Index and it will be available in the following currencies: GBP, USD, EUR, CHF, AUD, NZD and JPY.
This Fund is intended for institutional investors and for retail investors, who have received advice from a professional investment manager or investment adviser. Further information, including offer documents can be found on Pacific’s website.
The Pacific Coolabah Global Active Credit Fund aims to achieve a return in excess of global corporate bond markets by investing primarily in global investment grade corporate debt securities and government or sovereign bonds, using derivatives where appropriate.
The Fund will invest in portfolio of cash securities and bonds, including government bonds, bank bonds, corporate bonds, hybrid securities and asset-backed securities and residential-mortgage backed securities. It cannot invest in equities, property, unrated securities, high yield bonds or sub-prime loans.
The Fund uses a rigorous “bottom-up” process and seeks to identify bonds which offer a higher credit spread than the management team believe to be commensurate with the risk attached to the position. Coolabah adds-value by finding and exploiting bond mispricings in high grade credit markets that can generate capital gains or alpha in addition to the yield on these securities.
