Diaman has developed an #innovative #strategy applied to #Dynamic #Income sub-Fund.
The objective of the model is to identify those #bonds offering a superior combination of #yield and #creditworthiness. Diaman team has developed an innovative #indicator called #Diaman #Factor that allows to synthesize in a number the following variables:
Diaman Factor=f(FV Spread,Mkt Spread,EDF,D,LGD)
Where: FV Spread = Fair Value Spread (based on KMV Model provided by Moody’s Analytics); Mkt Spread = Market Spread; EDF = Implied Default Probability at 1 year (based on KMV Model provided by Moody’s Analytics); D = Duration. LGD = Loss Given Default
For example this model would have avoided bonds such as Lehman or Banco Espirito Santo. The #investment #process includes a daily risk control, and a monthly bonds review, in order to have undervalued bonds always in portfolio.
