Market development

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

Asian credit's return was -0.25% for the month, as a +1.51% return from spread tightening was more than offset by a negative return of 1.73% from rising treasury yields. Investment grade issuers showed a return of -0.80%, while high yield returned 2.85%. Central banks' policy remains a key theme area for investors, but in June-July, markets started to focus more on recession risk than inflation, which resulted in falling treasury yields. In August, Fed Governor Powell delivered a hawkish speech at the annual Jackson Hole economic symposium and this was the start of a reversal in yields. In China, the fundamentals of the property market remain weak, but increased policy support is a first step towards stabilizing the sector.

Dividend policy

ESG Integration policy

Sustainability is incorporated in the investment process by the means of a target universe, exclusions and ESG integration. The fund invests in credits issued by companies with a positive, neutral or low negative impact on the SDGs. The exposure to credits issued by companies with a low negative impact is at max 20% and the average SDG score of the fund must be greater than zero. The impact of issuers on the SDGs is determined by applying Robeco's internally developed three-step SDG Framework. The outcome is quantified with a proprietary SDG score methodology, considering both the contribution to the SDGs (positive, neutral or negative) and the extent of this contribution (high, medium or low). In addition, the fund does not invest in credit issuers that are in breach of international norms or where activities have been deemed detrimental to society following Robeco's exclusion policy. Financially material ESG factors are integrated in the bottom-up security analysis to assess the impact on the issuer's fundamental credit quality. Lastly, where a credit issuer is flagged for breaching international standards in the ongoing monitoring, the issuer will become subject to exclusion.

Expectation of fund manager

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

The economic recovery from the pandemic has not been as smooth as the market had hoped, with the conflict in Ukraine adding to inflationary pressures already well underway due to both a resumption in demand in developed markets and ongoing supply chain disruptions in other parts of the world. Developed market central banks have turned more hawkish, trying to rein in the excesses of stimulus. The tug of war between recession fears and very high inflation remains the main topic and results in volatile government bond yields and credit spreads. China is on a different monetary cycle to the US, as the economy is still suffering from a combination of Covid restrictions and an ongoing property market crisis. We are seeing the first signs that China is bottoming, although a recalibration of its zero-Covid policy after the China National Party Congress on 16 October is still uncertain. Asian investment grade spreads traded just above the median spread, while Asian high yield spreads remained much wider, driven by distressed Chinese property issuers.
