As an alternative investment strategy, event-driven credit aims to take advantage of the short-term decline of stock prices due to major corporate events, including restructuring, acquisitions, mergers, bankruptcies and others. BlueBay Event Driven Credit Fund (Canada) offers access to liquid stressed, distressed and special situations opportunities in global credit markets.

Event-driven credit can provide attractive risk-adjusted returns beyond typical high-yield credit. It can also help to:

Enhance yield

Invest in fundamentally mis-valued, higher-yielding fixed-income asset classes.

Diversify your portfolio

These assets have a favourable risk/return profile and a low correlation to traditional assets.

Seize opportunities in all market cycles

Corporate events can occur at any point in the credit cycle.

Unique credit opportunities

in stressed, distressed and less-liquid global credit across sectors and themes.

Attractive risk-adjusted returns

through a combination of income and capital appreciation.

Expertise of the BlueBay Fixed Income team

combined with the fundamental research-oriented approach undertaken by the wider BlueBay Leveraged Finance team.

The credit opportunities

The Fund seeks to take advantage of idiosyncratic credit opportunities across all market cycles, and is designed to capitalize on volatility and dispersion in corporate credit markets.
