Focus The strong opportunity in subordinated debt has lived up to expectations

The financial crisis of 2008-2009 was a game changer for fixed income investors as it created new opportunities, especially for credit specialists. The real impact from the financial crisis was not immediate, but rather became increasingly visible in the months and even years well after equity markets had started to recover from their extreme losses. In August 2016, SYZ Asset Management decided to launch a dedicated fund on European Subordinated bonds that just reached EUR 100mn in size. Our Milan-based corporate bonds specialists, who had been managing assets in this space since 2003, identified a unique opportunity in subordinated debt, brought on by the financial crisis and its collateral impact on regulation and financing behaviour. To date, the strategy has performed strongly and prospects in this growing space remain attractive.
