GAM Star Emerging Market Rates

Investment Objective

The Fund seeks to achieve positive absolute returns of approximately LIBOR +10% p.a., regardless of market conditions. Experienced managers, Paul McNamara and Caroline Gorman, use a top-down, thematic, approach to invest in emerging market sovereign debt, currencies and related instruments. Returns are generated through the active selection of country, currency, credit quality, interest rate and duration positioning. Their investment approach seeks to harness the crisis and recovery cycles that characterise emerging market economies by anticipating their infl ection points.
