UBS (Lux) Bond SICAV - USD High Yield (USD) P-acc
|ISIN no.: LU0070848972|
UBS High Yield Funds invest in high-yielding corporate bonds issued by borrowers of lower credit quality than is the case with our more traditional funds. UBS High Yield Funds are an attractive addition to the portfolio as they offer above-average earnings potential but at less risk than a direct investment in this market.
The fund invests primarily in high-yield corporate bonds selected using strict criteria.
When selecting issuers of such bonds, particular attention is taken to spread investments across the various credit ratings.
The investment objective is to generate a higher return than on prime USD bonds.
Clients benefit from the return potential of corporate bonds, which is higher than that of government bonds.
Active portfolio management ensures that particular attention is paid to the prevailing economic situation, sector selection and issuers' credit ratings.
Risk is kept in check via meticulous company analysis and broad diversification of the portfolio.
Depending on the credit quality, the default risk is higher in the case of high yield bonds than with investment grade corporate and government bonds. Changes in interest rates have an effect on the value of the portfolio. This requires corresponding risk tolerance and capacity. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The fund can use derivatives, which may result in additional risks (particularly counterparty risk).
