In July 2014, Altamar Capital Partners created Altamar Global Investments, a Broker-dealer regulated entity aimed at providing institutional clients with efficient access to assets classes other than Private Equity and Private Equity Real Estate assets.
Altamar Global Investments has a clear strategy focused on adding value for clients, making use of all the analysis and due diligence resources available at Altamar Capital Partners to access, select and offer clients the best managers in asset classes such as Private Debt, Absolute Return, and specific segments of the traditional Long Only space, such as High Yield, Convertible Bonds, and Emerging Markets Debt.
In a low-rate environment in Europe, where valuations of traditional equity and fixed income assets are stretched, investors require investment strategies enabling them to obtain stable returns with little correlation to interest rates and overall markets. The Private Debt and Absolute Return strategies address this need.
On the more traditional side, the lack of yield of lower risk fixed income assets, together with potential negative impact of rising interest rates, are implying that an increasing number of institutional investors are implementing a barbell strategy within their fixed income allocation; shifting part of their core allocation to Investment grade bonds to a combination of liquidity and higher yielding bonds (non-investment grade corporate bonds and Emerging Market Debt), optimizing their potential returns with a very similar risk.
