London, 12 July 2023. Robus Capital is adding the Robus Short Maturity Fund to its product range. Fund manager Benjamin Noisser invests for the new UCITS fund mainly in investment grade and cross-over bonds of European companies with short remaining maturities of around two years. On a tactical level, high yield bonds and mid-market bonds are added. The Robus team is thus aiming for a target return of 1.5 to 2.5 percent above the 3-month Euribor p.a. for fund investors.

London, 14 March 2023. The capital market year promises spring fever, which Mark Hoffmann, Portfolio Manager at Robus Capital, assesses as deceptive. Consumer confidence has proven more robust than suspected during the holiday shopping season, and energy prices are increasingly easing as well. “It’s too early for spring sentiment. In the U.S. and Europe, inflation is continuously weighing on high levels. Even if central banks are still acting cautiously in view of the fragile economy, they will solve the problem. It remains to be seen when, but they will certainly act with all the necessary rigor. It won’t work without a recession,” says Hoffmann. The full Press Release can be found here.
London, 13 February 2023. Robus Capital experts see little consensus in expectations for European high-yield markets in 2023. Performance estimates ranged from -8 percent to +15 percent, compared to a maximum of 2 percent to 3 percent in the past. “Even if a recession in some key European countries can actually be avoided at the last minute, there is still quite a bit of sand in the gears. Supply chains are still not back on track and the energy issue is not off the table either, despite the mild winter. The bottom line could be a positive return of 6-7 percent, but we don’t believe in a return to a linear development like in the past years,” says Mark Hoffmann, portfolio manager at Robus Capital.
