Management of fixed income portfolios has always been a core competence within SEB's asset management. The investment process has gradually evolved and expanded in terms of new types of fixed-income investments as well as investments in new regions. We were very early to build a strong credit management team as the market developed. In recent years we have also built expertise and products around the growing area "impact investing", i.e. investments made with the intention to generate beneficial social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.
Our range of products stretches from more traditional money market and bond mandates with a focus on the Nordic countries to global credit mandates in both Investment Grade and High Yield products. The ESG aspect is an integrated part of the investment process and a number of funds that the team manages have a clear ESG impact profile, i.e. Green Bond fund and the Micro Finance funds.
Our fixed income management is characterized by fundamental macro and credit analysis supported by solid quantitative analysis. Our fund managers have extensive experience and deep expertise. We manage funds as well as discretionary mandates.
