S&P Capital IQ to analyse corporate bonds for La Française

Research provider S&P Capital IQ has signed a deal to apply its credit analysis tools to aid asset selection for a forthcoming global credit fund from Paris-based asset manager La Française AM.

S&P Capital IQ will provide investment advice on the Luxembourg-domiciled fund through its global market intelligence team, which will employ a ‘risk-to-price’ methodology to find bonds that offer good risk-adjusted returns.

La Française, formerly known as UFG-LCP, has €35 billion under management, with a large part of its business derived from real estate investing.

The global market intelligence team at S&P Capital IQ has more than $18 billion under advisory. A spokesman said this is the first European deal of its kind for S&P Capital IQ.
