Performance explanation

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.date,'llll') ]}}

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -1.13%. The fund posted a negative return over the month, but above its index. Rates rose almost all month, as inflation is increasing rapidly. Part of this rise in inflation, likely due to the current rise in gas prices, is transitory, but inflation may become more sticky in the coming years due to second-round effects. This could force the ECB into tightening policy sooner than previously expected. The underweight duration position, the curve steepener position and the overweight in inflation-linked bonds all benefited in this environment. Government-related bonds also outperformed, as they sold off less than German Bunds. Country positioning slightly detracted from performance, as spreads tightened somewhat versus Bunds.

Market development

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.date,'llll') ]}}

Government bond markets continued their sell-off in September. Energy crunches, supply and logistics bottlenecks remained at the forefront. In the Eurozone, headline inflation has risen to fresh 10-year highs, and is set to rise somewhat further in Q4. In addition, market attention for the virus faded considerably. Vaccination rates in Europe are high and so far there are no signs of a new autumn infection wave. The German elections outcome provided no real surprises, with the SPD as expected becoming the largest fraction in the Bundestag. The most likely scenario currently seems to be a three-party coalition between SPD/FDP/Greens. Generally, such an outcome is seen as not rocking the boat too much on the fiscal side.

Fund allocation

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundAllocations.date,'llll') ]}}
Name Sector Weight
{{fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.top10}}

Currency policy

The fund is not exposed to currency risks, as the fund invests in Euro-denominated bonds.

Derivative policy

Robeco Euro Government Bonds makes use of government bond futures. These derivatives are regarded very liquid.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. The income earned by the fund is reflected in its share price. This means that the fund's total performance is reflected in its share price performance.

ESG Integration policy

In our government bond portfolios, the active country allocation is based on a combination of top-down and bottom-up analysis. In the bottom-up analysis, besides debt sustainability and economic cycle, ESG criteria are an integral part of our analysis. For our top-down analysis, our in-house developed RobecoSAM Country Sustainability Ranking (CSR) is used in our country allocation decisions. The CSR acts as an early-warning system which helps us to identify problems as well as opportunities in countries well before they are reflected in spreads, or are picked up by the rating agencies.

Investment policy

Robeco Euro Government Bonds is an actively managed fund that invests only in euro-denominated government bonds. The selection of these bonds is based on fundamental analysis. The fund's objective is to provide long term capital growth.The fund aims for a better sustainability profile compared to the Benchmark by promoting certain ESG (i.e. Environmental, Social and corporate Governance) characteristics within the meaning of Article 8 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and integrating ESG and sustainability risks in the investment process. In addition, the fund applies an exclusion list on the basis of controversial behavior, products (including controversial weapons, tobacco, palm oil and fossil fuel) and countries. The fund invests in euro denominated bonds issued by the EMU-member countries. It employs an investment process combining top-down and bottom-up elements. Fundamental analysis is performed on each of the three performance drivers: country allocation, duration (interest rate sensitivity) management and yield curve positioning. Country ESG scores are part of our bottom-up analysisThe majority of bonds selected will be components of the Benchmark, but bonds outside the Benchmark may be selected too. The fund can deviate substantially from the weightings of the Benchmark. The fund aims to outperform the Benchmark over the long run, whilst still controlling relative risk through the applications of limits (on currencies) to the extent of deviation from the Benchmark. This will consequently limit the deviation of the performance relative to the Benchmark. The Benchmark is a broad market weighted index that is not consistent with the ESG characteristics promoted by the fund.

Risk policy

Risk management is fully embedded in the investment process so as to ensure that the fund's positions remain within set limits at all times.

Expectation of fund manager

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundFacts.date,'llll') ]}}

The ECB still believes it is premature to talk about a QE exit. Though it has 'recalibrated' the net monthly purchase pace of the PEPP, after the recent acceleration into July. By year-end, pandemic permitting, a gradual phasing out of PEPP by mid-2022 might be agreed. However, to avoid a QE cliff and ensure that financing conditions remain favorable enough next year, the current monthly run rate of EUR 20 bln under the 'regular' APP program might be temporarily boosted. The ECB's forward guidance – aligned to the new 2% inflation target in July – still hints at a possible rate cut. Nonetheless, as it will take time before the transitory view on inflation transpires to be correct, we think there's still room for markets to price in more rate tightening in the coming months, but any further move in that direction is likely to be modest.
