Nordic Fixed Income is one of our major strengths at Danske Bank Asset Management, where we have a broad portfolio of strategies actively managed by portfolio teams with a local presence in each of the Nordic countries.
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.
Danske Bank Asset Management’s actively managed Global Inflation Linked Bond strategy offers protection against inflation.
Emerging Markets Bonds
Danske Bank Asset Management’s actively managed Emerging Markets Debt Hard Currency strategy invests mainly in government bonds, though the strategy also includes corporate bonds that are primarily issued by government-owned companies (quasi-sovereigns).
Danske Bank Asset Management has actively managed strategies in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, and all are managed by local portfolio teams. The goal is to deliver an excess return relative to the local equity market via a fundamental bottom-up strategy, with individual positions potentially deviating significantly from the benchmark – though always with due consideration given to risk.
Eastern European Equities
Danske Bank Asset Management has many years’ experience of investing in Eastern European equities and has three actively managed strategies under the control of our specialised Eastern European team.
Emerging and Frontier Markets Equities
Danske Bank Asset Management’s approach to emerging and frontier markets reflects our belief that active asset management requires in-depth local knowledge in order to stock-pick the best investments.
Global Stockpicking comprises a portfolio of 30-40 companies where the team follows a fundamental bottom-up strategy without restrictions in terms of sector or regional allocation. Quality is the key parameter determining the portfolio team’s selection of companies based on a firmly held conviction that quality companies create more long-term value for shareholders, which results in an excess return.
