Vontobel Fund - Euro Short Term Bond


Fund strategy

Investment objective

This bond fund aims to generate steady income and achieve above-average investment returns over a full economic cycle, while respecting risk diversification.

Key features

The fund invests worldwide mainly in bonds denominated in euros with different maturities of issuers of good quality (investment grade). The fund may have limited exposure to such bonds denominated in other currencies or from issuers of lesser quality. The average maturity of the portfolio must not exceed four years. The fund uses derivative financial instruments, mainly for hedging purposes.


The agile investment specialist team has a long-standing experience and strong track record in global bond investing. They make high-conviction decisions based on in-depth macro-economic, relative-value and issuer analyses. The team continuously evaluates inefficiencies across global markets to identify the most remunerating opportunities within the investment universe across interest rates, credit spreads, and currencies. They can also draw upon the knowledge of their award-winning colleagues skilled in credit and emerging-market bond investing. While their focus is on risk/reward optimization, the team actively adapts the portfolio striving to participate in favorable markets and keep the fund's vulnerability low in unfavorable markets.
