Market development

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

The global stock markets were mixed as investors weighed bets on faster economic growth in the US against the backdrop of stalling progress in the Covid pandemic in Europe. The US Treasury yields continued to rise, with the 10-year rates reaching 1.7%. Comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell that any inflation risks will be neither particularly large nor persistent allayed fears that the central bank would tighten monetary policy anytime soon. The 'Smart Mobility' theme continued to be attractive, as the transformation of the automotive industry towards electrification maintained its momentum. Notably the European electric vehicles (EV) market continues to show very healthy Y/Y growth rates, with EV sales penetration (both plug-ins and pure EVs) maintaining high levels after reaching a rate of close to 20% at the end of 2020 (or approximately 9% for the full year).

Strong monetary and fiscal stimulus combined with the economic reopening is increasing inflationary pressure in the US. At the same time, renewed virus-related lockdown measures in Europe as well as in other parts of the world are providing a counterforce to an all-embracing strong global economic recovery. The impact on the markets can be considered a net positive, as it is helping to balance current inflationary pressures. The underlying fundamentals (as reflected by the core themes addressed by the strategy) are currently very robust. Technology companies with strong and sustainable moats remain the focus of the strategy's investments. These include the development of high-voltage electric, low-voltage electronic and software-managed solutions that enable electrification, connectivity and autonomous driving. Other key enabling technologies include battery management systems, power inverters, 3D sensing, big data communication and artificial intelligence (AI). The strategy will also continue to seek exposure to China's EV market and to companies helping to build out the EV infrastructure worldwide.
