Best Fund Provider – High Yield Bond

Martin Horne

global head of public assets

“We are honoured to have been recognised as Best Fund Provider for High Yield Bond. This is a testament to our rigorous investment process and outstanding performance across market cycles, driven by one of the largest public fixed income investment teams in the industry with 140+ dedicated investment professionals, including 60+ research analysts covering bonds, loans, securitised and structured credit globally.

The depth and breadth of our high yield and broader global fixed income platform enables us to source differentiated opportunities across the credit spectrum, from investment grade to high yield, in both developed and emerging markets and across public and private credit. We have also been able to accumulate strong net inflows across our high yield bond business in 2023, at a time when broader market flows into the high yield asset class have been more challenged, which is a testament to our investment expertise and client servicing capabilities.”


“With a track record of investing in high yield bonds that stretches back almost a quarter of a century and multiple credit cycles, Barings is arguably better placed than most in the industry when it comes to spotting mispriced opportunities to the benefit of private banking clients in Asia Pacific,” said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

“All of that proved true in 2023, when – despite difficult underlying market conditions – the Barings Global High Yield Bond Fund was able to generate notable outperformance all while attracting significant, positive net flows from the wealth channel in Asia. Among the profitable calls that the portfolio management team made are those focused on the unloved oil and cruise sectors, both of which have benefited strongly following the re-opening of the global economy post-COVID-19. Just as importantly, the fund managers have been adept at avoiding problem industries – such as commercial real estate.

“Based on these reasons and more – and in the face of stiff competition – Asian Private Banker is delighted to award Barings the category of Best Fund Provider – High Yield Bond at the Asset Management Awards for Excellence 2024.”
