"Strategy and implementation require a subtle combination of people and techniques comparable to the sound of a renowned orchestra. What seems easy at first glance can be a complex arrangement of people and instruments, sometimes more art than science."
The satisfaction of our institutional investors and the achievement of long-term above-average returns are the driving factors. Only in this way can we have long-term relations built on satisfaction.

The CONVERTINVEST International Convertibles fund strategy is geared to the maximum long-term capital returns. The fund invests in global convertible bonds to achieve this aim. A high investment grade quota (85%) takes account of the security aspect. The main focus is on long-term fundamental investment decisions and the fund’s attractive risk/income profile.
Since its emergence CONVERTINVEST’s strategy, which has been in place since 2002, has revolutionised the possibilities offered by convertible bonds. It combines the conservative features of investment grade convertible bonds with the diverse opportunities offered by fundamental security selection, whereby capital preservation through delta management and volatility reduction form an important part of the management process.
The aim of the All-Cap Convertibles strategy is to outperform long term the European convertible bonds asset class. In addition the fund also aims to closely track share performance with significantly lower volatility. The fund has exceeded its benchmark since 2008 and is the multi-award-winning leader in its peer group.more
