J. Safra Sarasin Investment Foundation (SAST) – Investment Group Foreign Swiss Francs Bonds
Fixed-income investments continue to play a central role in the portfolios of company pension funds. But the increasing market volatility affecting interest rates means that a more active management of this investment medium is required in order to optimise yields.
To ensure that fixed-income instruments are managed in a way that maximises returns, Bank J. Safra Sarasin Ltd continuously monitors the macroeconomic environment and develops a suitable investment strategy based on the data and facts it compiles.
The focus of this strategy is on the active management of the duration and a well-balanced diversification of issuers domiciled abroad. The quality and liquidity of individual investments is of paramount importance for our investment strategy. Our goal is to beat the benchmark performance over the mid-term.
The portfolio's asset allocation is realised through Bank J. Safra Sarasin's institutional funds (fund-of-funds).
