By weighing up the potential downside with the potential upside, the risk to long-term client returns is significantly reduced.
First Sentier Asian Fixed Income Team
The First Sentier Asian Fixed Income team manages the fund’s Asian fixed income allocation. Operating across Hong Kong, Singapore, London and Sydney, the team is comprised of highly experienced investment professionals who have experience investing throughout the market cycle. The team adopts a valuation-based investment philosophy and consider the longer-term earning potential for each investment by applying a fundamental ‘Five Factor Analysis’ on each of the 15 countries in the region.
The five factors that influence and ultimately drive returns are: the macro-economic outlook; the valuation of the rates, credit and currency markets; the sentiment in those markets; the political outlook; and a technical assessment. These factors help formulate an outlook within each country and forms the basis of the team’s Asian fixed income strategies. These strategies are implemented with a medium-term time horizon, a focus on risk-return, quality credit analysis and appropriate risk management.
