The Bentham Global Opportunities Fund (Fund) provides diversified exposure to securities across global credit markets with the flexibility for opportunistic investments as market conditions arise.

This Fund is available to both retail and wholesale clients

The Fund is an absolute return-focused, multi-sector Fund, with active rotation in global fixed income and credit markets.

The Fund is actively managed and focused on delivering consistent levels of income, while aiming to protect against downside risk through the flexibility to hold up to 90% cash (if circumstances require).
