The Insparo Emerging Markets Credit Strategy (Strategy) launched in June 2008 with a mandate to invest in Africa and the Middle East. In February 2015, the Fund strategy changed to include all Emerging Markets and Frontier Markets thereby increasing the opportunity set.
The Strategy implements a research driven approach, seeking a maximum total return from distressed, mispriced, long & short event-driven and treasury fixed income investments in Emerging and Frontier Markets.
It has exposure to hard and local currency sovereign, quasi sovereign and corporate issues. The portfolio is opportunistic, actively managed and hedges market risk where appropriate.
It is managed by Mohammed Hanif, Insparo’s Founder and Chief Investment Officer, and is supported by investment analysts, David Blaylock and Floris Dijkstra and is backed by the seed investor.
