At Generali Investments, we developed an innovative unconstrained investment strategy to the Generali Investments Sicav (GIS) Total Return Euro High Yield designed to respond to investors' need for yield in a context of still low interest rates. The strategy follows a flexible investment approach, with no benchmark constraints, and seeks to achieve positive returns across market cycles.

  What you should know about the sub-fund:
  • Flexible approach.
  • The Fund combines a high conviction approach (through stock selection and single stock CDS) and overlay strategies against market risks (macroeconomic, correlation between asset classes, etc.).
  • Geographical portfolio diversification to optimize asset allocation.
  • Core exposure to Euro denominated issuers, with satellites being European cross-currency deals, US High Yield, EM High Yield.
  • Consistent risk controlled returns across a market cycle with a lower drawdown than traditional funds.
  • Target risk level (risk budget): 5% VaR across the market cycle (3-5 years on average).

The bond portfolio will be complemented by macro long and short overlay strategies so as to achieve the desired flexibility, particularly in the context of a lesser liquid asset class such as high yield. The fund follows a total return approach coupled with an active management of risk budgets.

Our dedicated team - led by Stefano Perin, in charge of High Yield bonds strategies - leverages on our strong in-house credit, equity and macroeconomic research teams.
