Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -1.51%. The fund outperformed the index over March and is ahead of the index year-to-date. The fund has an underweight duration position in US bonds since January and US yields rose strongly, especially in March. The tilts in the underlying portfolio detracted somewhat from the performance last month. All active duration positions are based on the outcomes of our quantitative duration model.

Market development

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

Yields rose in March. The Fed hiked rates for the first time and, more importantly, signaled its readiness to hike rates by 50 basis points per meeting for the next few meetings to fight inflation. Inflation has risen further, as energy prices spiked due to the tragic war in Ukraine. For now, higher inflation trumps the negative impact on growth. Bond yields declined in a risk-off move in late February and early March, but rose strongly later in March. US 10-year yields rose 51 bps and 2-year yields even 90 bps; markets now discount 250 bps of rate hikes over the coming 12 months. The ECB announced it will wrap up its bond purchases more quickly, allowing for earlier rate hikes. German 10-year yields rose 41 bps. Japanese 10-year yields rose only 3 bps, but the Bank of Japan had to intervene to prevent a further rise and long-dated bonds were volatile.

Name Sector Weight
{{fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.top10}}

Currency policy

All currency risks are hedged.

Derivative policy

Robeco QI Global Dynamic Duration makes use of derivatives in order to implement the duration overlay. In addition, derivatives are used to hedge the currency risks of the portfolio. These derivatives are very liquid.

Dividend policy

All income earned will be accumulated and will in principle not be distributed as dividend. Therefore the entire result is reflected in the share price development.

ESG Integration policy

The fund incorporates sustainability in the investment process via exclusions, ESG integration, and ESG and environmental footprint targets. The fund complies with Robeco's exclusion policy for countries and does not invest in countries where serious violations of human rights or a collapse of the governance structure take place, or if countries are subject to UN, EU or US sanctions. Via portfolio construction rules the fund targets a better ESG score and a lower carbon footprint than that of the reference index. This ensures that countries with a better ESG score or a lower carbon footprint are more likely to be included in the portfolio.

Investment policy

Robeco QI Global Dynamic Duration is an actively managed fund that invests worldwide in government bonds with investment grade quality.The fund's objective is to provide long term capital growth. The fund promotes ESG (i.e. Environmental, Social and corporate Governance) characteristics within the meaning of Article 8 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and integrates ESG and sustainability risks in the investment process. In addition, the fund applies an exclusion list on the basis of controversial behavior, products (inclAuding controversial weapons, tobacco, palm oil and fossil fuel) and countries. The fund uses derivatives to dynamically adjust the duration (interest-rate sensitivity) of the portfolio. The duration positioning is based on our proprietary duration model, which predicts the direction of the bond markets using financial market data. The ESG scores of countries are a integral part of our bottom-up country allocation decisions. Benchmark: JPM GBI Global Investment Grade Index (hedged into CHF), The majority of bonds selected through this approach will be components of the benchmark, but bonds outside the benchmark index may be selected too. The fund can deviate 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 systems continuously monitor the extent to which the portfolio differs from the benchmark. Extreme discrepancies are prevented in this way. The duration model makes use of futures, which can lead to leverage.

Expectation of fund manager

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

The fund's duration policy is fully driven by the outcomes of our proprietary quantitative duration model. By the end of the month, the model outcomes were negative for US bonds and neutral for German and Japanese bonds. The inflation and trend variables pointed to higher yields, but this was offset by weaker economic growth and strong demand for safe haven assets (low risk). Monetary policy and valuation were both negative for US bonds.
