Visibility and diversification: a solid combination for a new credit fund

Discover our new investment solution, based on a “buy and hold” carry strategy: Carmignac Credit 2025.


With interest rates at historical lows likely for a prolonged period, credit is, according to us, one of the rare asset classes that can still provide income with visibility

Carmignac Credit 2025 is a fund with a defined investment horizon that seeks to offer investors an alternative suited to these days of low, or even negative interest rates. It is designed for savers concerned with visibility regarding both the investment horizon and the performance target 1 , and who want to diversify the risks they are exposed to.

The Fund seeks to increase the value of the portfolio over a 5-year horizon, with a specific targeted annualised return for each category of units, as set out in the prospectus. 1

The objective does not constitute a promise of return or performance, the performance is not guaranteed. This objective relies on the realisation of the portfolio manager's market assumptions and does not constitute a promise of returns. Issuers' actual financial situation may be worse than expected and this may adversely affect the Fund's performance.

A rigorous selection of issuers from a vast investment universe

Carmignac Credit 2025 has been designed to seek to identify attractive risk premia across the globe to construct a broadly diversified, yet highly selective portfolio.

  • Investment Grade allocation
    Maximum of 100%
    High Yield allocation (speculative securities)
    Maximum of 50%
    Portfolio average rating
    Minimum of BBB- or rating considered as equivalent by the management company

  • Emerging markets corporate-bond allocation 2
    Maximum of 30%
    Structured credit
    Maximum of 40%
    Currency risk exposure
    Hedged - Euro

In constructing the portfolio, the Fund managers draw on both their convictions and an in-depth analysis of each opportunity examined. This same approach is used to calculate the targeted annualised return for the portfolio over the 5-year period from the Fund’s launch date to its maturity date. 1
