Capital Group to offer corporate bond Ucits in Asia

BeijingUS-based Capital Group has added a global corporate bond fund to its Luxembourg-domiciled Ucits range for distribution in Europe and Asia. The firm, which has $1.6 trillion under management, has added a series of fixed income funds to its Luxembourg range in the past year, including a US corporate bond fund and a high-yield bond fund. “This milestone underlines our commitment both to the asset class and to enhancing our offering for clients around the world,” said Thomas Quantrille, head of Asia. The firm says the new fund will buy investment-grade corporate bonds only, avoiding the temptation to buy high-yield bonds as well. Capital Group has offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo. ©2018 funds global asia
