Our thematic investing approach provides an alternative to traditional strategies by seeking to capture sources for growth and performance through genuine long lasting trends to offer sustainable solutions to our clients.
Dynamic multi factor investing
Combining a traditional fundamental analysis with a quantitative model, the multi-factor management translates into creating widely diversified portfolios.
Multi-Asset management was developed by CPR AM from the moment the firm was founded and has now taken its place as one of its core capabilities.
The bond managers handle the entire spectrum of bond investments, with a broad range of conventional and innovative solutions:
Innovative and active allocation strategies are independent of conventional benchmarked approaches.
Our pure directional approaches tap into the carry of asset classes (credit or inflation) without exposure to interest rates variations.
A bond allocation approach with two separate and complementary performance drivers aiming to offer a highly robust solution regardless of market configuration.
More than one third of assets managed by CPR AM are in money-market and short term funds. These are split into three distinct categories that are based on investor needs
Research and strategy
Aware of the importance of macroeconomic research and a proper assessment of financial and fiscal policies, CPR AM has from the start provided a Studies and Strategy desk for its fund management activities
