Lazard Global Convertibles Recovery Fund (the 'Fund') aims to maximise total return from income and capital growth. The Fund is actively managed and will primarily invest in convertibles bonds (i.e. debt securities that are convertible into the equity securities of the issuer) which the Investment Manager has determined are likely to experience recovery in valuations. The strategy of the Fund is to focus on investment opportunities presented by companies, sectors or regions that have been underperforming or undervalued at the time of investment.
The Fund will also invest in investment grade, non- graded investments, unrated convertible bonds and/or debt securities (e.g. bonds) which are issued by companies, governments, government agencies, quasi sovereign bodies or supranational bodies (such as the World Bank) across the world.
