Schroders unveils euro high yield fund

Schroders has launched a European high yield bond fund for manager Konstantin Leidman.

The Schroder ISF Euro High Yield fund will invest a minimum of 70% in a portfolio of sub-investment grade bonds, mainly issued by European entities.

The fund, which will be benchmarked against the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Euro High Yield Constrained index, will be managed by Leidman, who also runs the euro high yield part of the firm’s ISF Global High Yield fund .

Leidman, who joined Schroders in August 2013 from UBS Global Asset Management, will work closely with Schroders colleagues in the US, Europe and Asia to combine top-down and bottom-up views across the macro and credit research teams.

Leidman said: ‘The European debt crisis is currently providing numerous opportunities for active investors in European high yield bonds.

‘This market has grown considerably over the last decade, and we expect this trend to continue with further growth as a result of bank deleveraging and downgrades of countries in peripheral Europe. I

‘In the low rate environment there is a strong case for an asset class that provides attractive risk-adjusted returns with a strong income generation component.’
