Loomis Sayles Euro Credit Team Celebrates First Three-Year Milestones

Loomis, Sayles & Company, the global investment manager and Natixis Investment Managers affiliate with EUR311 billion in assets under management as of 31 December 2023, is pleased to celebrate the three-year anniversaries of its Loomis Sayles Euro Credit and Loomis Sayles Euro High Yield funds. The funds, which were launched in February 2021, are managed by the firm’s Euro Credit team under the leadership of co-heads Rik den Hartog and Pim van Mourik Broekman.

Backed by Loomis Sayles’ industry-leading data infrastructure and its corporate culture focused on asset management, the Euro Credit team seeks to generate consistent excess return versus the benchmark. This is accomplished by using an active, conservative alpha investment process that aims to capitalize on inefficiencies in the euro credit market. Loomis Sayles Euro Credit invests primarily in investment grade, euro-denominated corporate bonds while Loomis Sayles Euro High Yield invests primarily in the BB segment of the euro-denominated high yield corporate bond market. The team’s Loomis Sayles Sustainable Euro Credit fund will reach its three-year anniversary in May 2024.

“Since joining our firm more than three years ago, the Euro Credit team has succeeded in continuing to deliver strong performance and has posted impressive growth in assets under management,” said David Waldman, chief investment officer of Loomis Sayles. “These results reflect the relevance of the team’s capabilities in helping to meet the needs of clients and investment consultants across Europe.”

“We are fortunate to benefit from the exceptional infrastructure and tools that Loomis Sayles has invested in, which have provided the Euro Credit team with a solid base for growing efficiently and generating investment ideas,” said Rik den Hartog, portfolio manager and co-head of the Loomis Sayles Euro Credit team. “We continue to be well equipped to capitalize on opportunities in the market as we seek strong risk-adjusted returns for our clients.”
