The portfolio consists of corporate bonds issued by companies from the Nordic region, central Europe, the United States and to a certain extent emerging markets. When we invest in emerging markets, we benefit greatly from our long-standing experience from investments in, for example, China, Africa and India.

Simplicity Global Corporate Bond consists of a portfolio of approximately 120-130 corporate bonds issued by companies from different parts of the world with varying levels of credit rating. About half of the Fund’s holdings consists of bonds with a high credit rating, so-called “Investment Grade bonds” and half consists of holdings with a lower credit rating, so-called “High Yield bonds”, which are expected to generate higher returns. The holdings are selected through a structured, fundamental investment process developed by our managers who have long experience of investing in these types of securities. With today’s interest rates and credit spreads, the fund is expected to generate an effective annual return of approximately 3 to 4%. The fund has no lock-in effects, it can be bought and sold daily without fees.

Simplicity’s funds exclude companies that exploit fossil fuels. Responsible and sustainable investments are an integral part of Simplicity and we have therefore signed the UN-supported guidelines PRI. None of Simplicity’s funds invest in companies that sell cluster munition, anti-personnel mines, chemical and biological weapons, or nuclear weapons. All funds also exclude companies whose operations are more than 5% attributable to alcohol, tobacco, commercial gambling, pornography, weapons or military equipment.
