The Fund aims to outperform the LOIM-Fundamentally Weighted-EUR BBB-BB Index,a proprietary benchmark, by investing in debt issued by companies issuing in the Eurozone with a credit rating of BBB or BB (or the 5Bs). Many of the issuers in this universe are known by the designation of rising stars or fallen angels and are ignored by traditional investment grade or high yield funds. The fundamentally weighted benchmark is a function of 5 credit metrics,including turnover, leverage, interest coverage, free cash-flow and an indicator of company's policy towards bondholders.
