AXA Investment Managers has launched the AXA Global Strategic Bond fund, an ESG integrated fund.
The fund mirrors the existing offshore AXA WF Global Strategic Bonds fund and will be managed by Nick Hayes and Nicolas Trindade. It invests in fixed income assets using top down strategic asset allocation with bottom up regional and sector-specific credit selection.
Commenting on the launch, Nick Hayes, manager of the AXA Global Strategic Bond strategy, said: “The strategy delivers exposure to the global fixed income market via a flexible and transparent process and approach which adapts to the current conditions to capture returns, whilst minimising the volatility experienced by individual sub-asset classes within the wider universe. With so much uncertainty facing fixed income investors at the moment, we believe now is the optimum time to hold such a flexible strategy.”
