ELEVA Capital soft-launches first funds for fixed income team 

By Chris Sloley, Citywire Selector – December 15th, 2020

Eric Bendahan’s boutique will be looking to uncover global and European bond opportunities.


Eric Bendahan’s push into fixed income market has started quietly, with Eleva Capital having soft-launched two strategies to grow assets and track record before being exposed to a wider audience, Citywire Selector has learned.

Eleva made the move into bonds at the start of the year with the creation of a specialist fixed income unit, which was formed through hiring Alexandre Melendez from Axa Investment Managers, Laurent Pommier from Groupama and analyst Yann Flambard.

The company had intended to launch two funds over the summer, but instead brought them to market in September. The funds are formally called the Eleva Global Bonds Opportunities and Eleva Euro Bonds Strategies.

Melendez, who is head of fixed income, is named as portfolio manager on both funds, while Pommier serves as deputy portfolio manager.

In the Eleva Global Bonds Opportunities fund, the duo will focus on achieving a positive absolute return over the medium term by investing primarily in international bonds.

They will operate with a top-down philosophy and look at the relative value of issuers. Overall duration is expected to fluctuate between -4 and +10 dependent on market scenarios. The recommended investment horizon for the fund is five years.

The Euro Bond Strategies fund has the same portfolio management team and a similar investment focus, albeit focused on euro-denominated debt. The recommended investment time horizon for this fund is three years.

It is understood the funds are part of a wider plan to diversify Eleva’s expertise beyond equities and had not been aggressively marketed to allow the team to bed in their process.
