J. Safra Sarasin Investment Foundation (SAST) – Investment Group Domestic Swiss Francs Bonds
Fixed-interest investments continue to play a key role in the portfolios of company pension funds.
Increasing market volatility in interest rates, however, demands a more active management of this investment category with a view to optimising yields. In order to do this, Bank J. Safra Sarasin Ltd continuously monitors the macroeconomic environment and develops a suitable investment strategy based on the data and facts it has at its fingertips. The heart of this strategy is the active control of durations and a well-balanced diversification of issuers domiciled in Switzerland.
The overriding priorities for Bank J. Safra Sarasin's investment policy are the quality and liquidity of the individual investments. The goal is to outperform the benchmark in the medium term.
The portfolio's asset allocation is realised through Bank J. Safra Sarasin's institutional funds (fund-of-funds).
