April 18, 2023 – La Française is pleased to announce that its fixed maturity, climate-change oriented fund, La Française Carbon Impact 2026 has surpassed €200 million in assets under management (as at 06/04/2023). The credit fund is a diversified portfolio of approximately 150 global issuers with an average rating of BB (Source: La Française, as at 06/04/2023) and is co-managed by an experienced team of two: Marie LASSEGNORE, CFA, Head of Sustainable Investments & Investment Grade Portfolio Manager and Gabriel CRABOS, High Yield Portfolio Manager La Française AM.
The overarching objective of the fund to direct capital towards financing the energy transition and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Over the recommended investment period which runs until 31 December 2026, the fund aims to outperform (after fees) French government bonds with a 2026 maturity. The fund invests in a portfolio of issuers filtered primarily according to Environmental, Social and Governance criteria and analysed with regard to their compatibility with the energy transition on the basis of a proprietary methodology. The fund is committed to having a weighted average of the portfolio's greenhouse gas emissions per euro invested (scopes 1 and 2) at least 50% lower than that of a comparable investment universe that would be the composite 30% Bloomberg Global aggregate Corporate Index 70% ICE BofAML BB-B Global High Yield Index.
La Française Carbon Impact 2026 (distinguished with the French SRI Label and classified Art. 9 SFDR ) has a yield to worst of 5.87% (gross of fees and net of hedging costs).
“In our view, La Française Carbon Impact 2026 is well positioned to navigate in the current market environment and even weather a deteriorating market outlook. The fund has a short duration and high convexity. A very defensive mix,” concluded Marie Lassegnore, La Française AM
