French boutique Anaxis Asset Management has bolstered its short-term bond fund range and launched a Europe-focused fund for investors looking for yield over the next five years.
This latest launch from the Paris group comes amid increased fervour among investors for bond funds with either target maturities or investing in securities which can be quickly liquidated.
Anaxis’ latest launch, the European Bond Opp 22 fund, comes hot-on-the-heels of the firm unveiling a US-focused fund in March and is designed to also build on its existing European Bond Opp 18 fund.
Bonds in the fund will be drawn from the industrials and non-financial services sector and be corporate debt maturing on December 31 2022. It is a France-domiciled Ucits fund.
Credit Suisse recently extended its own target-dated/short-term debt fund range with a new launch, while Carmignac’s dedicated fund, Carmignac Securite, emerged as one of the best-selling funds in the entire Citywire global ex US database over the course of 2016.
