MFM Global Convertible Bonds

Fund strategy

MFM Global Convertible Bonds in CHF, EUR and USD are part of the MFM Fund (Lux) umbrella fund. The MFM Global Convertible Bonds sub-fund was launched in 2003 with as objective to provide investors with an exposure to the convexity of the high-end credit quality convertible bonds market through a conservative long-only strategy.
