ING Investment Management has announced the launch of a diversified bond fund, which will invest using a multi-strategy investment approach to the credit market.
The ING (L) Renta Fund First Class Yield Opportunities will be combine the skills of three key investment teams, the multi-asset, credit and emerging market debt boutiques.
The individual bonds are selected by ING IM specialized teams for investment grade credit, global high yield and emerging market debt. The fund's volatility is monitored and can be scaled down depending upon market conditions.
The fund will focus on bonds that offer attractive yields and take into account an estimate of the inherent risks.
Commenting on the launch, Hans Stoter, CIO at ING Investment Management, said: 'Global credit markets have proven to be an attractive investment over time and can be an attractive diversifier for a government bond oriented fixed income portfolio.'
'The need to fully understand the issuers and issues and to select the bonds with the most favourable estimated risk-adjusted returns requires analysis by credit specialty teams. The new First Class Yield Opportunities Fund combines our knowledge and experience in all of these fields.'
