Diversified ABS – A Better Start for credit portfolios?

Presented by

Shalin Shah and Martin Foden

About this talk

For Professional Clients only, not suitable for Retail Clients. Investment grade credit has become a fundamental building block for UK pension funds. Shalin Shah, Senior Fund Manager and Martin Foden, Head of Sterling Credit Research will examine if the market’s predilection for familiarity when it comes to bonds is counterproductive and whether Asset Backed Securities (ABS) may be a better starting point for building credit portfolios with more secure cashflows. Critically, with economic headwinds and market volatility increasing, they will discuss whether the rehabilitation of securitisation post the financial crisis means a conventional approach to investing in ABS is not just missing opportunities but exposing investors to significant latent risk? They will also consider how by taking a more diversified exposure to secured bonds, investors could capture the clear advantages of the asset class whilst minimising these hidden risks.
