New names for four of our Fixed Income funds

10.03.2021

On the 10th March 2021, four of our Fixed Income Funds changed their name: the word ‘unconstrained’ has simply been removed.

A key characteristic of all Carmignac Funds is their ‘unconstrained’ philosophy: a truly active and flexible approach providing them the ability to navigate diverse market environments.

As our unconstrained philosophy will continue to apply to our entire Fixed Income range (and management), there is no need to mention it in the individual names of each Fund.

This change has no impact on the Funds’ respective objectives, investment strategy, risk management or fee structure.

In the case of Carmignac Portfolio Flexible Bond (formerly Carmignac Portfolio Unconstrained Euro Fixed Income), we have taken the opportunity for a name adjustment to better reflect its global fixed income strategy – with the currency risk systematically hedged in euro.

Discover the new names of the four Fixed Income Funds concerned by this change:

Our ‘Unconstrained’ Fixed Income Philosophy

All our Fixed Income Funds share the same philosophy: an active, global and non-benchmarked investment approach relying on greater flexibility in managing exposures.

It is based on three pillars:

A FLEXIBLE ALLOCATION

Our Fund Managers have a pertinent tool kit at their disposal to optimise the management of exposures, including wide modified duration brackets that can go from negative to positive territory.

A GLOBAL INVESTMENT UNIVERSE

Our Fund Managers have the ability to invest in a broad and diversified investment universe and various fixed income asset classes, according to their respective Funds’ strategy.

A NON-BENCHMARKED APPROACH

Portfolio construction is a result of Fund Managers’ views and in-depth market analysis, without bias to any benchmark and without constraints in terms of regions or sectors*.

* Outside limits mentioned in the Funds’ prospectuses.

Our Diversified Fixed Income Range

Our Fixed Income Fund range is composed of complementary Funds, designed to meet different investor profiles according to their risk appetite and investment objectives:
