We Choose Our CoCos Carefully and Believe That You Should Too

Managing a portfolio of CoCos requires specialist knowledge of the asset class as well as a deep understanding of financial equity and credit markets.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Because of this, an investor is not certain to make a profit on an investment and may lose money. Exchange rates may cause the value of overseas investments to rise or fall.
