How does M&G approach investing in global credit?


Localism applied globally is a key element of how M&G invests in global credit, using its value-driven bottom-up approach to fixed income.

M&G adopts a value-driven approach to investing in credit. There are no short cuts to success in investing so we ask questions about the value on offer from an asset before we commit.

  • What do we know about issuers and the position they are in? Equally important can be, what don’t we know?
  • Is the compensation available sufficient to justify the risk we are taking for our investors?
  • Does the issuer of the security have enough capacity to pay the money back?

The answers to these questions help guide our investment decisions.
