The Amundi Pioneer Securitized Credit Opportunities Strategy is an alternative credit strategy that seeks high yield and to outperform the US high yield corporate credit market over a full market cycle. Both high yield (non-benchmarked) and investment grade (benchmarked) versions of the Strategy are available.

                         

                              

                        

                       

The Strategy is currently focused on capitalizing on inefficiencies within US housing and housing finance, though the opportunity set consists of all securitized credit sectors. It is suitable for investors seeking to outperform the high yield market, but with uncorrelated returns, and with an intermediate to longer-term investment horizon.
