Kapstream Capital

About Kapstream

Kapstream Capital (Kapstream) was founded on a simple belief; that by removing the constraints inherent in conventional benchmark-relative fixed income portfolio strategies, and by setting absolute return targets and absolute risk limits, portfolios could be constructed using predominantly investment grade assets that more closely met the true requirements of investors in preserving capital and delivering consistent and positive absolute returns. 

Kapstream combines capital preservation techniques with unconstrained portfolio management skills in the pursuit of stable, absolute returns. 

Approach

Approach Body

Kapstream adheres to an active and less traditional approach to fixed interest management, one that blends top down macroeconomic outputs with bottom-up security selection. Unlike more mainstream competitors, it is not subject to the same benchmark relative constraints, providing the team with greater scope to incorporate best trade ideas and position the portfolio in response to varying market conditions.

ESG

Kapstream believe that factors affecting long-term corporate sustainability, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations should be incorporated within fundamental investment processes. These factors play an increasingly important role in many industries and the investment community’s greater focus on ESG will have an impact on company valuations in the future. The consideration of ESG risks is an important and fully integrated element of Kapstream’s investment process and influences Kapstream’s investment decisions.
