Why invest in European convertible bonds?


Convertible bonds are a hybrid asset class offering both equity and credit exposure. In this piece, we review the technicalities of the convertible bond asset class.

Our bottom-up process which favours balanced risk-profiles and small and mid-cap companies should help to extract value from the market.
