LBP AM and La Banque Postale launch a new target-date bond fund: LBPAM ISR Obli Novembre 2028

SRI 20.10.2023
new bond fund

Designed and managed by LBP AM and distributed by La Banque Postale, LBPAM ISR Obli Novembre 2028 will be invested in bonds and other international debt securities. 

This new, ISR-certified target-date bond fund will be offered to Banque Postale clients within the framework of accounting-unit life assurance contracts, capitalisation contracts and securities accounts. The marketing period during which investors may subscribe lasts until 16 December 2023. 

LBPAM ISR Obli Novembre 2028 has a dual objective: to attempt to provide subscribers an annual yield between 3.7% and 4% (net of management fees) upon fund maturity (i.e., on 30 November 2028) , while following the SRI approach that is a feature of LBP AM. 

Vincent Cornet, Chief Investment Officer at LBP AM: “Alongside La Banque Postale, we wanted to expand the range of target-date bond funds accessible to the general public, during a period favourable to this type of product. With the surge in interest rates, we were once again seeing yield opportunities on the relatively long section of the yield curve. Hence, our decision to opt for a five-year maturity for a portfolio with diversified sources of performance, at the crossroads of investment grade and high yield ”.   

Mimouna Boutchich, Head of Financial Savings and Insurance at La Banque Postale: “La Banque Postale is taking one more step in its strategy of expanding its Savings range. To assist our clients in diversifying their assets, we are offering this new bond fund to tap into market opportunities. This ISR-certified solution lets our clients to give meaning to their savings and fits perfectly into our range of responsible investments.”

Bond picking and proprietary SRI approach

This fonds commun de placement [mutual fund] will be invested in bonds and other international debt securities (public- and private-sector, denominated in currencies of OECD countries) that do not mature after the fund’s target date, i.e., 30 November 2028. Up to 100% of the fund’s net asset value may be exposed to investment grade bonds and up to 50% to speculative high yield bonds. 

LBP AM’s investment strategy is based on the active and discretionary management that is favourable to bond picking. It does this by researching the investment universe, based on financial and extra-financial criteria, for the purpose of identifying issuers whose risk-adjusted profile is deemed attractive and whose sustainable development practices are among the best, based on LBP AM’s assessment. 

To do so, LBP AM deploys its proprietary SRI research method, called “GREaT ”, centred on responsible governance, sustainable management of resources, the energy transition and regional development.

And, lastly, LBPAM ISR Obli Novembre 2028 meets the reporting requirements of SFDR  Article 8 and features a moderate risk profile (SRI 2), as well as a sustainability threshold of at least 10%.
