GLOBAL ABSOLUTE RETURN

An actively managed alternative source of fixed income

An absolute return sovereign bond fund, allocating across G7 nations and selected highly rated countries, including Australia, with the objective of generating excess return, uncorrelated to traditional fixed income market benchmarks and risk assets.

CC JCB Dynamic Alpha Fund

Delivering risk control and uncorrelated returns

Overview

The CC JCB Dynamic Alpha Fund (the Fund) is designed as an absolute return product, that aims to deliver stable and consistent returns over time irrespective of share and bond market movements. The investment team applies a range of portfolio management and risk-controlled techniques to a universe of global high grade sovereign bonds (i.e. anchored by G7 nations, as well as other selected highly rated countries, such as Australia). It offers a high level of liquidity in Government issued instruments, without any corporate credit exposure.

Given the unconstrained nature of the Fund, JCB has access to a wider range of markets and financial instruments – using a combination of duration positioning (both long and short), interest rates curvature, cross market positioning, relative value and currency strategies. This provides a greater range of options to help generate superior risk-adjusted returns for investors.

The investment team is highly experienced in managing global bond strategies and is able to combine its best ideas to create additional diversification from that of the market.

WHY GLOBAL ABSOLUTE RETURN FIXED INCOME?

With interest rates at historical lows, it is increasingly challenging for investors to earn income. There are however other opportunities that allow skilled fixed income investment managers to exploit opportunities across financial markets. Absolute return fixed income strategies enable investors to benefit from these opportunities, without the risk of a negative market beta (or interest rate risk). This is one reason to look at absolute return fixed income.

Diversification – the Fund can be used to help diversify other exposures such as equities, credit or more volatile absolute return offerings as it is uncorrelated to traditional market benchmarks and risk assets.

Capital preservation – the Fund only invests in global high grade government issued assets, keeping the underlying asset pool of the highest quality with a lower risk of capital loss compared to other investments. The assets are unencumbered by benchmark relative constraints and this can help mitigate against periods of market volatility and potentially profit from them.

Income – by nature of the fixed income instruments in the portfolio such as government, Supranational or Public Finance Agency backed bond issuers, the income generated by bond securities is consistent and regular (usually semi-annual).

Highly Liquid – the underlying markets of global high grade bonds and bond futures are liquid positions that in usual market conditions can be bought or sold by the Fund with ease.

“The strategy allows us to utilise a full range of financial instruments and to implement our investment ideas independently of the market environment and any index.  We see this as an alternative solution in a world where the options for consistent income are credit based and often illiquid.”
Charlie Jamieson, CIO
