Nordea European Rates Opportunity Fund

Strategy Description

European Rates Opportunity Fund mainly invests, directly or through derivatives, in European bonds. The strategy mainly invests in covered and government bonds with a strong bias towards European covered bonds. Specifically, the fund invests a minimum of two-thirds of total assets in European covered bonds or debt securities issued by public authorities in Europe. The fund also invests at least one-third of total assets in debt securities with a rating of AAA/Aaa or lower, but not lower than AA-/ Aa3, or equivalent. European Rates Opportunity Fund seeks to run fixed-income strategies that offer attractive relative value instead of relying on directional positions. The actively managed strategy follows a risk-based approach focusing on quantitative research.
