Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -0.04%. During the month, short positions were opened in Japan, the US and Germany. The part of the positions implemented with 5 and 10-year futures contributed positively to performance, but a part of the duration positions is implemented using futures on long-dated bonds. The yields on these bonds fell in the last part of the month, so these positions contributed negatively. Year-to-date, the fund has outperformed, as it has benefited with short positions from the rise in yields in the first months of this year. 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') ]}}

US Treasuries and German Bunds returned 0% in October and Japanese government bonds -0.2% (hedged to euros). Nevertheless, October was a volatile month for government bonds. Yields rose strongly in Australia, where the RBA abandoned yield curve control, and in Canada, where the central bank reduced its bond purchases. In the US, UK and Eurozone, 2 and 5-year yields rose, while 30-year yields declined. The market increasingly expects central banks to hike rates soon to fight inflation. Long-term bonds benefit as inflation risk is reduced. Yield curves thus flattened strongly.

Derivative policy

Robeco QI Long/Short 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

In principle the fund does not intend to distribute dividend. The income earned by the fund is reflected in its share price. The fund's entire result is thus reflected in its share price development.

ESG Integration policy

For Robeco QI Long/Short Dynamic Duration ESG factors are incorporated in the investment process. A key feature of the fund’s sustainability investing approach is that debt of countries and companies with a favorable ESG score is more likely to be included in the portfolio. The fund’s weighted ESG score versus a euro corporate bond index is measured using Sustainalytics ESG scores. The fund’s weighted ESG score versus a government bond index is measured using Robeco Country Sustainability scores.

Investment policy

Robeco QI Long/Short Dynamic Duration is an actively managed fund that invests mainly in bonds and similar fixed income securities with a short duration and takes active positive or negative duration (interest-rate sensitivity) positions. The duration positioning of the fund is fully based on a quantitative model.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, next to engagement. Active duration management is the sole performance driver for this fund. Robeco’s quantitative duration model generates forecasts for the direction of bond yields in the main developed bond markets (United States, Germany and Japan). The duration overlay is implemented using bond futures. The Benchmark of the fund is a cash benchmark. The fund aims to outperform the Benchmark over the long run, whilst still controlling relative risk through the application of a tracking error limit. This will consequently limit the deviation of the performance relative to the Benchmark. The Benchmark is an overnight index or ‘money market index’ that is not consistent with the ESG characteristics promoted by the fund.

Risk policy

Risk management is fully integrated in the investment process to ensure that positions always meet predefined guidelines.

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 bonds. The trend, inflation and low-risk variables pointed to rising yields. Valuation was negative for German bonds and monetary policy for US bonds.
