Promethion Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority to provide investment advice to professional clients and eligible counterparties.
Although we monitor all the major asset classes our research base is particularly strong in the credit space.
The principals of Promethion have extensive experience in managing a credit research function. This background places us in a very strong position when advising clients because we understand precisely what drives the investment process and enables us to distinguish leading investment managers from the pack.
Zoë Shaw ran a credit team which analysed and invested in 260 corporate names. She and her team worked closely with analysts at all the leading rating agencies. The credit analysis was built around 4 key processes: valuation; risk; surveillance and a proprietary model.
The proprietary model was developed internally and aimed to track spread movements across the investment universe and facilitated identification of portfolio & pricing anomalies.
Portfolio managers were then well placed to monitor risk / reward on a daily basis via risk management alerts. A detailed spreadsheet was developed to support financial ratio and trend analysis. The information generated by the model was a key input in determining the Internal Credit Watch list.
