Our fixed income and credit strategies

Norwegian fixed income

With NOK 100+ billion in more than 40 Norwegian mandates (funds and discretionary portfolios), Storebrand's Norwegian fixed income management is among the largest in the Norwegian market. Our various fixed income funds, which account for approximately 40% of the capital, gives clients effective access to both hign and low interest rate risk and credit risk.

Global fixed income 

Credit analyses and risk models, as well as access to good market data and good macro analyses, prove their worth in global fixed income management. We have invested around NOK 140 billion in global fixed income on behalf of our clients. In our global credit funds, we have also taken sustainability to a new level, both by making the fund fossil-free and by introducing expanded criteria for exclusions. Storebrand has received the highest rating from PRI for our work on integrating sustainability into fixed income management.

Swedish fixed income

Storebrand's Swedish fixed income funds have its product affiliation with our Swedish subsidiary Storebrand Fonder. The Swedish fixed income funds, including a green bond fund, are available in Norway to Storebrand's institutional clients only.

Private debt

Storebrand continually strives to develop our product range. Mortgage-secured real estate bonds are a very efficient building block in a well-diversified investment solution. We have put together a discretionary portfolio consisting of unlisted bond loans with credit maturities of up to ten years, fixed interest rates, and security in the underlying real estate. Since starting in this area in 2015, we have invested about NOK 50+ billion on behalf of our institutional clients.
