Jupiter Asset Management has further stepped up its expansion into emerging market debt with the launch of a short duration bond fund, the company has announced.
The new fund will target short duration bonds exposed directly or indirectly to emerging market economies worldwide.
It will adopt a total return approach, with the flexibility to allocate between sovereigns, corporates, and local currency, while keeping average duration under three years.
Supported by two dedicated EMD analysts, Nachu Chockalingham and Reza Karim, Arevalo will aim to identify long term opportunities that could benefit from macro and/or specific events at a sector or company level.
The firm said the dedicated EMD team is fully integrated into the firm’s fixed income team, enabling an active exchange of ideas across fund managers and analysts across sectoral and regional specialisms.
