PRESS: Robus German Credit Opportunities Fund surpasses the 100 Million-Euro-Mark

Frankfurt, February 09, 2015. Fixed income strategies that provide uncorrelated and constant yield income are in demand in current capital markets. This is how the fund size for the Robus German Credit Opportunities Fund, managed by investment boutique Robus Capital, has been able to more than quintuple since its launch almost three years ago. The Robus German Credit Opportunities Fund was established as a Luxembourg Special Fund (SICAF-SIF) and is only accessible to qualified investors and semi-professional investors. In November 2013, however, Robus also launched the Robus Mid-Market Value Bond Fund (UCITS IV) in collaboration with Hauck & Aufhäuser. This mutual fund is managed using the same investment strategy as well as regional- and company focus as the Robus German Credit Opportunities Fund, but invests exclusively in listed bonds.

NEWS: Robus in Handelsblatt on the Future of the Mittelstand Bond Market

Frankfurt, January 05, 2015. Robus Capital was interviewed in an article of the Handelsblatts for an opinion on the future of the mid-sized corporate bond market. The article by Michael Brächer is entitled “Pleiten, Pech und Peinliches” and appeared on page 60 and 61 of the weekend issue from the 2nd/3rd/4th of January 2015 (No. 1). Robus was cited as follows: “In order for mini-bonds to have a chance, something has to change. “We believe that the market deserves a future,” says Dieter Kaiser, Managing Director of the Frankfurt based asset management firm Robus. “However, underwriters need to learn from the mistakes of the past and new bond issues finally need to be professionally structured.” Kaiser is referring to standards that have long been common in international markets for high-yield bonds. He would like “collateral, covenants, and guarantees from all affiliated companies.” This way creditors receive significantly more in the event of insolvency than they have in the past.” Source: Handelsblatt (2015).
