Credit markets

Credit is an important part of our asset mix, sitting between equities and fixed income government bonds on the risk-return spectrum.

Previously, the allocation to credit was via external managers and bank products, but in May 2015 we set up a public credit investment function within USS investment team. Internalising credit is consistent with our objective of providing cost-effective and aligned internal investment solutions across asset classes.

The Credit team supports, challenges and collaborates with USS investment management groups to optimise the efficiency and risk-return characteristics of the credit allocation.
