African and Frontier Markets: Risk and Opportunities

Corporate Bonds: Investing in the Real Economy not Financial Bubbles
Milan, 4 May - Hotel de la Ville - 12:00 pm

ICFAS is pleased to welcome Kevin Corrigan, Fixed Income – Head of Credit Management at Lombard Odier.
Credit investors have been ill-served by traditional industry conventions. Market-cap weighted benchmarks in credit force investors to invest in the most indebted borrowers and industries with the most leverage. We think there is a better alternative. By investing in the industries that matter most to European growth, and companies that are not judged just on their outstanding debt, we can provide a better investment opportunity more aligned with the real economy and not with the next debt crisis.
