In a complex bond environment characterised by low yields and rising interest rates, what is the best approach for laying a solid foundation for a bond portfolio?
A tried and tested investment process
Guillaume Rigeade and Eliezer Ben Zimra, co-managers of the Fund, have been demonstrating the robustness of their investment process, even in complex environments, since they joined Carmignac in July 2019. In addition to their double-digit performance, they recouped the losses that followed the Covid-19 crisis in just 50 business days, compared with 167 for their peer group average, as represented by their Morningstar2 category.
A strategy with a solid track record
Although Guillaume and Eliezer joined Carmignac only two years ago, they have been working together on this strategy for over eight years and have demonstrated their ability to consistently create value over time. The proof is in the numbers3 :
3.8 %Annualised performance over 8 years
1.6% higher than the average of its peers, represented by their Morningstar category2
4.1 %Annualised volatility over 8 years
In line with the Fund's mandate (risk scale: 3*)
