Our ambition is to help our clients achieve their investment goals across market cycles by selecting good quality credits and generating income. Our core Credit capabilities span Corporate Credit (Loans and Bonds), CLOs, ABS and Regulatory Capital, Structured Credit and Convertibles.


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.

Directional Opportunties

High conviction, multi-asset class strategy managed by Lord 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

A flexible and dynamic alternative credit strategy that seeks consistently high levels of income by exploiting opportunities and inefficiencies across global Asset Backed Security (ABS) markets.

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
