The Russian Fixed Income Fund meanwhile will invest in a portfolio of ruble-denominated sovereign, municipal and corporate bonds with medium to long term duration and high credit quality. The fund will focus on issuers with expected improvement in credit quality and / or rating upgrades and will be similar to Troika’s flagship fixed income Ilya Muromets fund (launched in 1996).
