Carmignac launches its third target maturity Fund

Carmignac Credit 2029

  • Published

Three years after the creation of our first target maturity bond fund, we are now launching Carmignac Credit 2029 so that investors can benefit from high yields on credit markets. This fund has now been registered for sale in Switzerland along with our second vintage, Carmignac Credit 2027.

Favourable conditions

Carmignac

After a particularly turbulent year for bond markets and more than a decade of very low and even negative interest rates, the horizon has cleared for the asset class. The rise in interest rates, brought about by restrictive monetary policies introduced to tackle rampant inflation, now offers investors more attractive returns.


With market conditions still uncertain, a buy-and-hold strategy that combines visibility, diversification and selectivity may be an appropriate option.

Key features of Carmignac Credit 2029

Carmignac Credit 2029 follows a buy-and-hold strategy on global credit markets. With a careful selection of issuers, a target performance objective and predetermined end date1, Carmignac Credit 2029 gives investors visibility over their investment and diversifies the risks to which they are exposed.

  • Carmignac
    A vast investment universe

    Carmignac Credit 2029 may invest in both developed and emerging markets, in securities with diverse risk/return profiles, to build a diversified and selective portfolio with an average investment grade2 rating.

    A target performance objective

    The Fund targets an annualised performance, net of management fees, of more than 4.22% for the A EUR Acc unit between its inception on 20/10/2023 and maturity on 28/02/20291.

  • Carmignac
    Risks that diminish over time

    In addition to systematic hedging of currency risk and to the portfolio’s diversification, the very nature of the Fund allows to anticipate a diminution of interest rate and credit risks as the end date approaches.
