What is so interesting about Swisscanto bond funds?

  • As a response to low interest rates, most investors tend rather to get rid of bonds and expand their risky investments. However, one's personal risk capacity does not change on account of the current interest rate environment. It is therefore better to seek returns within the bonds asset class, not outside of it.
  • Structural changes open up opportunities, for example increased regulation following the financial crisis or the increasing breadth and depth of the market for high yield bonds.
  • Our product range is aimed at both opportunity-oriented and cost-oriented investors.
  • With Swisscanto Invest by Zürcher Kantonalbank, you also receive our proven 100% Swiss Made Asset Management competence in the bonds segment.

  • Compelling product range with a successful track record
