The objective of the Artemis Short-Dated Global High Yield Bond fund is to deliver returns in excess of cash over rolling three-year periods. The managers are David Ennett and Stephen Baines, with support from Juan Valenzuela, Jack Holmes and Stephen Snowden.
Launched on 20 June 2019, the Artemis Short-Dated Global High Yield Bond fund now has assets of over $101 million, or €90.6 million. Artemis is pleased to announce that the fund is now registered and available to investors in 13 European countries:
- Italy (for institutional investors)
- UK (with exemptions for Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Jersey)
Artemis’ Head of Distribution, Jasper Berens, commented: “This new fund enhances our capability in fixed income. David and Stephen are experienced and respected managers. By broadening what we offer, we are confident that this new fund will help us continue to meet investors’ needs. It’s a particular pleasure now to have the fund widely available across Europe – and already attracting significant inflows.”
