Lombard Odier IM launches high yield target-dated bond fund

Lombard Odier Investment Managers has launched a target-dated high yield bond fund as short-dated debt strategies continue to gain interest from investors in the current market, Citywire Switzerland has found.

The LO Funds – High Yield 2022 fund launched on 2 October 2017 as a Luxembourg-domiciled fund and targets high yield corporate bonds denominated in EUR, USD, GBP and/or CHF.

The new strategy is run by head of fixed income Yannik Zufferey in Zurich, senior portfolio manager Jérôme Collet based in Geneva and Vikki Lindstrom based in London.

The fund’s subscription period is open until 10 November 2017.

The launch comes within a year of the creation of the LO Funds – High Yield 2021, which was first announced in December 2016.

The short-dated 2021 high bond fund is run by the Lombard Odier trio and now has total net assets of $ 92.46 million across all share classes.

The Lombard Odier managers also co-run the LO Funds - Global BBB-BB Fndm fund, the LO Funds - Euro BBB-BB Fundamental fund and the LO Funds - Global Corporate Fndm Syst Hdg fund. This is while Zufferey oversees a host of fixed income strategies as head of the unit.
