High yield bonds

SCOR Investment Partners: responsible investor in the European High Yield bond market

Since our inception, we have been a committed player in high yield bond management and have developed a recognized expertise, proven in different market cycles.  

Our investment universe includes high-yield bonds  (excluding financials) denominated in euros. The generation of regular and recurring returns over the long term is at the heart of our investment philosophy.

The investment process combines a top-down approach with a bottom-up approach. The top-down approach aims to define our positioning relative to our investment universe and our sector allocation. As issuer selection is key to managing default risk, our bottom-up approach is based on a fundamental credit analysis integrating sustainability issues. All our portfolios are long-only and exclude credit derivatives.
