Longs are typically credits that are trading significantly below their intrinsic value and short positions are typically overvalued opportunities that will re-price around an event or catalyst.

For sovereign and corporate investments, model based valuation tools are used to provide a foundation for identifying credits which are on an improving trend and are mispriced relative to their credit score. After identifying the best credit investment universe through their our quantitative process, Grammercy looks at the output of credits from the model and incorporates information that can’t be captured in quantitative tools when making final portfolio investment decisions. The firm's Long-Only Debt Strategies include USD Sovereign Debt, Local Markets Sovereign Debt, Corporate Debt, High Yield Corporate Debt, Distressed Debt, Asset Allocation and Total Return Allocation, as well as UCITS products for Local Markets Sovereign Debt, Corporate Debt, High Yield Corporate Debt, and Total Return Allocation.
