The purpose of this “cushion” is to exploit opportunities that from time to time arise in the market field without being forced to sell existing positions in the portfolio.
The Bonds asset allocation is based on the Company’s top down view and targets absolute returns by actively investing in the most safe and liquid governments and corporate bonds in the major currencies.
Exposure to additional credit risk is opportunistically added by investing in corporate bonds, emerging-market debt and high-yield bonds via investment funds to achieve a high degree of credit risk diversification and to provide clients with attractive returns compared to the level risk being taken.
Our investment strategies also include access to commodities through ETFs, and tailored strategies, allowing our clients to further optimize the return and risk profiles of their portfolios.
While Londinium invests in equities and bonds directly it also invests in actively managed funds as this often allows its clients to achieve a level of portfolio diversification as well as geographical and sectorial market exposure that they would not be able to achieve by exclusively investing directly in securities.
Londinium’s independence calls for an on-going and systematic search for the managers with the best management skills and best products. This allows investors to make the most of the best financial products available on the market and to invest in a variety of investment sectors and strategies, thus significantly enlarging their investment universe while increasing diversification.
