Sydney-based boutique investment manager Supervised Investments has been awarded a global fixed income mandate by Alpha Fund Managers.
Infocus subsidiary Alpha Fund Managers has added another fund manager, Supervised Investments, to its roster.
Sydney-based boutique Supervised Investments will manage the allocation within its global income fund, which invests in debt securities such as mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and collateralised loan obligations (CLOs).
Supervised Investments chief executive Michael Ohlsson said investors are currently focused on capital preservation.
"They don't want to take unnecessary risks, which is why they like our conservative approach, focusing on preserving capital while also delivering attractive returns and regular income," Mr Ohlsson said.
Alpha Fund Managers portfolio manager Julien Brodie said Supervised Investments was selected after a due diligence process that assessed performance, fees and risk management.
"The Supervised Global Income Fund has an impressive track record that is testament to their investment skill," Mr Brodie said.
"The fund is unconstrained by market benchmarks and we believe its top-down macro-analytical framework, combined with a credit-intensive bottom-up process, will add significant value for our investors given the challenging outlook for sovereign debt markets," he said.
Supervised Investments' global income fund has been managed by former Macquarie Bank executive director Phil Carden since inception.
