Markets price in credit risk for companies according to how they are expected to cope with their financial obligations. The riskier the company is, the more you can require return on your investment.
Corporate fixed income is a product where you invest in the credit risk of a reference company. There can be one or several reference companies. Corporate fixed income is the same kind of investment product as bonds issued by corporates.
If the reference company avoids any major financial hardship during the term to maturity, you will get a return above the market rate. If the company suffers, for example, payment default or bankruptcy during the term to maturity, you will lose part of your investment. Interest will then be paid only on the remaining capital.
We aim to select corporate fixed-income reference companies in such a way that the risk involved is moderate but the expected yield is attractive.
