Fund ManagerEuan McNeil
The investment objective of the Fund is to generate positive absolute returns over a rolling 3 year period irrespective of market conditions. The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing in global debt instruments in any currency, ranging from AAA Government Bonds through to high yield and emerging market bonds. The Fund may invest in all types of fixed and floating rate fixed income securities.
On 29 April 2015 we launched a new UCITS absolute return bond fund. The Fund uses a transparent, repeatable, and robust investment process and it is managed by a well-established and proven team. It is designed to provide a low risk solution to investors faced with negative deposit rates in much of mainland Europe, aiming to deliver 1% per annum above the 1-month EURIBOR rate, net of fees over rolling three-year periods.
Euan McNeil is an investment manager in the fixed income team. He specialises in investment grade credit and co-manages two investment grade bond funds as well as several institutional portfolios. Euan joined us in 2003 from Britannic Asset Management, where he worked in the corporate bond team. Prior to that, he was an international equities manager at Blairlogie Capital Management. Euan studied International Business and French at the University of Strathclyde and has an MSc in Investment Analysis from the University of Stirling. He has 18 years’ industry experience.
