Multi Asset Credit

Long-only global credit portfolios which seek to lend selectively to the right businesses, and allocate to the right asset classes and sectors at the right time, doing so responsibly. The strategy aims to exploit opportunities primarily across the sub-investment grade credit space, investing predominantly across senior secured loans, high yield and investment grade corporate credit, asset backed securities and convertible bonds. The CQS Credit Multi Asset Fund is classified as Article 8 under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation.

Regulatory Capital

To meet capital requirements, banks share some of their loan risk with investors, paying coupons in return. Investors receive stable yield and access to hard-to-source loans.

Investment Trusts

CQS-owned New City Investment Managers is an adviser to a range of funds, including 3 resource funds and a High Yield fund that are managed by a specialist investment team with a wealth of experience across the natural resources and High Yield sectors.

Loans

The strategy takes advantage of dislocations and opportunities in global loan markets, as well as changes to probability of default, and loss given default, through active portfolio management.

Directional Opportunties

High conviction, multi-asset class strategy managed by Sir Michael Hintze. The approach is focused on identifying themes and harvesting mispricings across global asset markets, utilising an investment team which is experienced in assessing complexity across the capital structure.

Asset Backed Securities

Global asset backed securities (ABS) strategies which focus on exploiting inefficiencies in the pricing of credit and related risks across the spectrum of ABS markets. CQS manages an alternative strategy which invests in long, short and relative value positions in Residential Mortgage Backed Securities (RMBS), Collateralised Loan Obligations (CLOs) and other ABS instruments, longer-lock regulatory capital vehicles and bespoke ABS mandates.

Absolute Return Convertibles

UCITS-compliant convertible bond strategy managed with an absolute return mentality. The strategy is designed to generate capital growth while seeking to preserve capital through the careful selection of convertible bonds near their bond floor where the underlying equity has potential for price appreciation.

Asian Macro

Discretionary macro strategy focused on investment opportunities driven by the markets and economies of the Asia Pacific region.  The strategy is contrarian, value-orientated and research-driven, investing in liquid, easily-valued instruments in the equity, commodity, currency and rates markets.
