    including government
    and corporate bonds

    sources of diversification:
    equities, currencies and more

Fixed-Term Fund Management

With its long-standing expertise in the domain, La Française Group offers pioneering fixed-term fund management solutions.

By holding on to the bonds in the portfolio until their common maturity, fixed-term funds provide opportunities for diversified investment on the markets for bonds—both government and corporate—while limiting exposure to volatility, which diminishes as the maturity of the securities approaches.

  • Lock-up

    Securities can be kept in the portfolio until they mature

  • Arbitrage

    The manager may conduct arbitrage transactions if a security's default risk increases

  • Maturity & volatility

    The closer the maturity date, the lower the volatility


La Française teams draw on the variety offered on the bond markets to apply promising themes to their high-conviction management approaches.

From subordinated debt to inflation-linked bonds, convertible bonds, hedging against interest rate hikes, etc.  Many options are available to help investors achieve diversification and increase potential returns.

  • Conviction

    High-conviction management aiming to opportunistically seize market trends

  • Asset classes

    A distinctive approach to asset classes (e.g. niches such as subordinated debt)

  • Strategies

    Differentiation strategies (e.g. an “fixed-maturity” approach to convertible bonds)

An area of expertise developed by La Française GAM and its affiliates.
