Higher rates, everywhere: Goodbye beta, good morning alpha!
Fewer opportunities on fixed income means more opportunities on currencies. Active currency management represents 40% of H2O risk allocation and this environment is the beginning of a long-term cycle on carry trade strategies. The lack of support from central banks means higher volatility but also more stable correlations over the medium-term . How can long short strategies benefit from this environment to maximise diversification within a portfolio?

Global Impact Credit – going beyond green bonds
One of the first funds of its kind in the UK, the Global Impact Credit Fund focuses on delivering positive and measurable impact, alongside the prospect of generating returns. Our impact pillars align to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), a globally recognised framework designed to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity.
Unlike most competitors, we go beyond green bonds as we look to a broad opportunity set spanning the corporate and credit universe, identifying impact-aligned issuers.
