Amundi launches Amundi Funds Global Macro Bonds & Currencies


Amundi has launched Amundi Funds Global Macro Bonds & Currencies, which, through its flexible absolute return approach, seeks to capture the opportunities offered within the global fixed income universe.

The objective of this new sub-fund of the Luxembourg-domiciled range is to outperform the EONIA (Euro Overnight Index Average daily compounded) over an investment horizon of three years.
With developed market growth accelerating, major Central Banks are starting to adjust global liquidity provisions and the Eurozone debt crisis is now abating. As a result, the prevailing low interest rate and benign inflation environment may be set to change.
Cédric Morisseau, fund manager of Amundi Funds Global Macro Bonds & Currencies, says: “The current market environment presents a strong argument for an absolute approach. A traditional ‘long-only’ benchmarked approach typically provides investors with low returns and exposes them to asymmetrical downside risk. With our absolute return concept, bond exposure is managed to target positive returns, even in declining markets.”
Amundi Funds Global Macro Bonds & Currencies seeks to offer investors returns through dynamic risk allocation and strategic positioning. The portfolio invests across the global fixed income universe, including government bonds, corporate credit, emerging market debt, and currencies.
Morisseau says: “We see currency as a separate potential source of alpha, actively managed according to portfolio risk targets in order to help achieve the performance objective.”
