James Gledhill

Widely regarded as one of Britain’s foremost credit specialists, James Gledhill rejects the traditional labels of ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ when describing his investment process as he feels that neither accurately describe a process that looks both at the wide economic situation and the quality of individual investments. Gledhill starts his investment process with a macro economic assessment of the world’s major economies. This enables him to choose his positions in government bonds and set the backdrop for further analysis needed to pick corporate bonds. The macro-economic picture enables him to hunt out the best investment opportunities. Gledhill then assesses, company by company, which are the best investment choices. He considers this part of the process to be particularly important for high-yield issues ‘where you have to get the precise company and the precise bond right’. A material sciences graduate of Trinity College, Oxford, Gledhill spent eight years at M&G where he pioneered the concept of high-yield corporate bond unit trusts. After brief spells at PPM Ventures and Morley he joined New Star Asset Management in August 2002. He then joined AXA Investment Managers as global head of high yield in 2011.


The Sub-Fund will seek to invest in high yield, fixed-income corporate debt securities and, to a lesser extent, preferred stocks which offer, in the view of the Investment Manager, a high return at the time of purchase. The Investment Manager anticipates that the average expected life to maturity or redemption of the Sub-Funds investments will be three years or less, although the Investment Manager may vary this approach if market conditions so warrant.
