European bonds

Danske Bank Asset Management has three strategies covering European bonds, which are managed by portfolio teams from our large credit team. The strategies have an active investment style with bottom-up research and security selection and aim to identify changes in bond risk premiums.

European Investment Grade Bonds

The European Investment Grade Bonds strategy invests in Euro-denominated investment grade corporate bonds with a principal amount > EUR 500m and a rating of A+ to BBB-.

European High Yield Corporate Bonds 

The European High Yield Corporate Bonds strategy invests in Euro-denominated high yield corporate bonds and has a high degree of issuer diversification with around 100 different issuers.

European Corporate Sustainable Bonds 

The European Corporate Sustainable Bonds strategy focuses on European corporate bonds with a sustainable profile. Bonds are actively selected according to two main criteria – a financial assessment of the company as a debtor and an assessment of the company’s sustainability credentials. The portfolio consists of at least 75% corporate bonds of investment grade and up to 25% high yield.
