Artemis launches new short-dated high-yield bond fund


Artemis has launched the first fund for its new fixed income managers, who recently joined the firm from Kames.

The objective of the Artemis Short-Dated Global High Yield Bond fund is to deliver returns in excess of cash over rolling three-year periods. The managers are David Ennett and Stephen Baines, with support from Juan Valenzuela and, in due course, Jack Holmes and Stephen Snowden.
Co-manager Ennett says: “While areas of the fixed income market offer yields below inflation, short maturity high yield corporate bonds are the mainstay of this new fund. They provide yields which normally exceed inflation. Short-maturity BB- and B-rated corporate bonds, an important part of the fund’s universe, have typically been less volatile than the lower-rated parts of the high yield market. Our aim is to preserve investors’ capital and see it grow steadily in real terms, via re-invested income.
“Stephen and I are delighted to be managing this fund.”
Artemis’ Head of distribution, Jasper Berens, adds: “This new fund enhances our capability in fixed income. David and Stephen are experienced and respected managers. By broadening what we offer, we are confident that this new fund will help us continue to meet investors’ needs.”
The fund, a sub-fund of the Artemis Funds (Lux) umbrella, is a UCITS vehicle, currently available to investors in the UK. Registrations across Europe are planned shortly.
