UBS Global Asset Management has unveiled a new U.S. corporate bond fund for European investors in Switzerland and Luxembourg. The fund will use the Lehman Brothers U.S. Corporate investment-grade index as its benchmark and invest in bonds rated triple-A down to triple-B minus, according to a firm spokeswoman. The size of the fund could not be determined.

Craig Ellinger, a Chicago-based portfolio manager will be responsible for the fund. He is part of the firm's global fixed-income group. The launch of the new U.S. fund comes on the heels of UBS' other new addition of a European corporate bond fund. That fund is now up to £240 million.
