Market development

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

Total returns for government bonds were negative in January, with UK Gilts at -1.8% and US Treasuries at -1.3% clearly underperforming Bunds (-0.5%). This rise in US yields can be explained by heightened inflation expectations, anticipations of sizable fiscal stimulus with a Democrat majority in Congress and speculation on a tapering of Fed bond purchases. In the UK, progress in vaccinations and hope of an upcoming reopening of the economy added to the rise in yields. Euro rates markets responded negatively to the ECB's January statement, as this specifically mentioned that "the PEPP envelope need not be used in full". Peripheral bonds behaved relatively well, despite Italian Prime Minister Conte resigning after not receiving enough votes in the Senate for an absolute majority. The expectation that snap elections are still a remote scenario, combined with continued ECB PEPP purchases, prevented the Italian bond market from coming under severe pressure.

ESG Integration policy

Climate change considerations are fully integrated in the research process, from an impact and risk perspective. The greenhouse gas emission intensity of issuers is a starting point for determining the impact on climate change, and in our research process we add a forward looking element by assessing the decarbonization potential, strategy and targets. This is to ensure the strategy follows the desired decarbonization trajectory. This may include issuers whose emissions are currently high and that are making an effort to reduce these. Our approach is to invest in sovereign and corporate issuers that allocate capital towards sustainable economic activities. Our analysis of issuers goes beyond the traditional financial factors and includes the issuers’ performance on ESG factors. ESG factors play an important role in the investment process, including climate related risks, both in country analysis and credit analysis. For investments in sovereigns, Country Sustainability Ranking and underlying research is used as input for assessment of the structural outlook for a country. For credits, the ESG analysis is part of the fundamental scoring by the sector analyst.

Expectation of fund manager

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

We expect yields to remain anchored by the expectation that central banks will keep rates unchanged for at least another two years. Still, in the coming months, markets could be inspired by (temporarily) higher inflation prints to price in some tightening of monetary policy in 3-5 years' time. Much will depend on the speed of vaccinations, and possible new virus mutations. Expectations on additional fiscal stimulus will likely remain an important driver as well. Within euro periphery markets, we see opportunities in flattening of still steep spread curves, especially in longer maturities.
