Montrusco Bolton

Navigating style impacts through shifting environments 

With rapid shifts in market forecasts, equity investment styles have produced exceptional impacts on excess return. In the ChampionsCall Jean David Meloche, Head of Global Equities and Robert Hiscock, Assistant Portfolio Manager, EAFE Equities, both at Montrusco Bolton, will explain how alpha generation in the top decile has been maintained through COVID-fueled drops and rebounds in reflationary environments.

As Portfolio Managers of the UI I Montrusco Bolton Global Equity Fund I A (ISIN LU2361251221), they demonstrate how the team have successfully navigated these changes through the benefits of a high active share, a process that captures a strong selection effect and a proactive risk management framework.



Emerging market bonds have reacted sensitively to recent geopolitical events such as the war in Ukraine, both local and hard currency. The freezing of foreign assets and the country’s exclusion from international capital markets may have pushed Russia to the brink of insolvency. In addition, global inflation is climbing and a number of central banks are already tightening their monetary policy. In this ChampionsCall, John S. Gray, Portfolio Manager of the UI I - LGIM EM Absolute Return Bond Fund, discusses the extent to which these developments have already been priced into the risk premiums of emerging market bonds as well as the sectors in which buying opportunities can still be found and why it is crucial to be flexible in this tense environment.

In this UI-ChampionsCall , Klaus Blaabjerg, Chief Portfolio Manager of the Danish credit specialist, explains Absalon’s recent move to significantly reduce its US exposure.
