Founded in 2008 by Walter Butler, Butler Investment Managers Limited is a specialist European Credit investment manager. The team is made of dedicated credit investment professionals, most of whom have been working as a team since 2005-2007. With a strong European credit market experience, we have consistently demonstrated our ability to make the most of the different economic and market cycles. The company, regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), operates on two platforms, one in London (management company) and the other in Paris (consulting firm).
The fund WB Opportunity invests primarily in European corporate credit securities with a total return approach.
The strategy’s approach is aimed to take advantage of a fast growing, inefficient market where experience allows us to create alpha through credit picking while our risk management approach enables us to preserve capital and keep volatility within our targeted range of mid-single digits. We take a Top down-Bottom up approach to European Credit. The team’s three pronged investment considerations include:
- assessing the current macro-economic environment
- assessing market technical’s
- understanding the fundamentals of each credit, avoiding idiosyncratic risk where possible
Our investment portfolio consists of investing in:
- Directional Trades
- Relative Value Trades
- Special situations
- Stressed and distressed securities
