Generali unveils two new funds


The Generali Group has launched two new funds within its UCITS-compliant Generali Investments SICAV (GIS) – the GIS Absolute Return Convertible Bonds fund and the GIS SRI Ageing Population fund.

Generali Investments – the Group’s main asset management company with approximately EUR375 billion of assets under management – has been appointed investment manager of the new funds. 
The GIS Absolute Return Convertible Bonds fund is designed for investors seeking consistent risk-adjusted returns. The strategy combines opportunities in a broad convertible bond universe with hedging/arbitrage techniques to improve downside protection. The GIS SRI Ageing Population fund is designed to benefit from the long-term ageing demographic trend by investing in companies that are exposed to this growing market and applying a screening based on Socially Responsible Investments criteria as well as on the theme. 
Andrea Favaloro (pictured), Head of Sales & Marketing at Generali Investments, says: “As part of Generali Investments’ ambition to become a world-class investment brand and the preferred choice for our clients, we have initiated a robust plan to develop our business dedicated to third- party investors, basing on our strongest expertise areas. The two new funds demonstrate our commitment to executing this plan taking advantage of some of our most outstanding capabilities, including our credit research, macro research, SRI analysis and stock-picking.”
