Redefining bond investing since 1976

The more a brand specialises, the stronger and more easily identifiable it is in its market

Atlanticomnium is an independent Geneva-based fund management company with an office in London, who have specialised in credit investing since they were founded in 1976. The fund managers, Anthony Smouha and Gregoire Mivelaz, have a combined experience of over 40 years in credit analysis and, as a result, have cultivated a loyal client base of institutions, banks, brokers and finance companies, as well as managing assets for GAM since 1985. With investor interest in credit increasing, many newer market participants are simply focused on chasing higher yields, which can cause market inefficiencies. This makes credit a particularly rich hunting ground for established players with seasoned expertise, like Atlanticomnium.

Richard Smouha built Atlanticomnium around this principle. As corporate bond specialists, we use a proven methodology which applies an active management approach to enhance the value of your assets through consistently high current income and capital growth.
