They use the Group’s fundamental research along with their own credit market analyses to establish internal recommendations for each issuer; they work with CPR AM’s fund managers and strategists to define a multi-criteria scoring scale for the credit markets; and they work day-to-day with the fund managers to benefit from their real-time knowledge of portfolio positions.

ACTIVE AND OPPORTUNISTIC ASSET MANAGEMENT

Market price valuation forms the basis of our approach to active asset management

By determining the market price valuations of all our positions on a daily basis, we are able to take an active and opportunistic approach to managing our portfolios and offer our clients full transparency, thanks to:

  • the leeway we give our fund managers, who are able to reallocate assets at all times at market prices to liquidate risk or seize opportunities;
  • the real prices used in our portfolio valuation process: our clients therefore enjoy full transparency on the risk/reward profiles of their investments.

Volatility is a reflection of this price reality throughout the investment horizon of each of our funds.

Liquidity is among our top priorities

Fund managers take an active approach to managing liquidity according to market conditions and their views on the assets held in each portfolio:

  • investment vehicles selected on the basis of their liquidity, a preference for public issues and limited use of private placements, calibration of the liquidity pocket;
  • close relations with our clients, in-depth knowledge of the assets held in our funds.


A COMPETITIVE RANGE STRUCTURED BY RISK/REWARD PROFILE

Our money-market and short-term bond funds account for over a third of the assets managed by CPR AM. They break down into 3 main categories depending on the needs of our investors:

  



SRI LABELLED CASH MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS

CPR AM’s money-market offer includes labelled investment solutions incorporating an SRI approach. Issuers are selected on the basis of fundamental criteria but also ESG criteria as defined by the Amundi group’s team of non-financial analysts.

CPR Monétaire ISR obtained France’s SRI label in June 2020; CPR Cash in february 2021. As per the specifications set out by the government authorities, its investment approach thus meets criteria covering the following six major themes:

  • the fund’s general objectives,
  • the fund’s transparency,
  • the methodology used to analyse and rate issuers according to established ESG criteria,
  • integration of these criteria into the portfolio construction process and throughout the portfolio’s life, 
  • the engagement policy (voting and dialogue), 
  • impact measurement (positive impacts of ESG investment).
