Coolabah Capital Investments (Coolabah) is a leading active credit manager with 13 analysts and 5 portfolio managers. Coolabah’s founder and CIO is Christopher Joye, one of Australia’s leading economists, policy advisors and fund managers, and a regular contributor to the Australian Financial Review.
Coolabah is the investment manager of the Switzer Higher Yield Fund (Managed Fund).
Coolabah manages approximately A$7.5 billion of assets (as at December 2021) on behalf of leading super funds, insurers, financial advisers and high-net-worth investors. Coolabah specialises in the generation of credit alpha through finding assets that are trading at a discount to fair value that will realise capital gains as their credit spreads normalise. This contrasts with conventional fixed-income managers that try to boost their yields by chasing credit default risk, liquidity risk, and/or interest rate risk.
