Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -0.09%. The fund posted a neutral return in October, more or less in line with the index. The underweight duration position subtracted from relative performance as German bond yields declined over the month. Overweight positions in Italy and Spain hurt relative performance slightly as spreads widened further. The US curve steepener position added to performance. Main positive contributor to relative performance was the underweight credit via several credit derivative indices. After the as ‘somewhat hawkish’ interpreted speech by Jerome Powell, equity and credit markets started to sell off. Confrontational rhetoric from the populist Italian government and increased tensions around the trade war between the US and China also was not supportive to sentiment. We closed the underweight credit positions around month end.

Market development

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

Returns were mixed in October for government bonds. US Treasuries lagged, with a return of -0.8%, while Germany was leading with +0.6%. The main reason for the difference in return was renewed unrest in Italy, which drove euro area investors into the safe haven of German Bunds. Italian spreads widened as the government posted a 2019 budget with a ‘confrontational’ deficit level of 2.4%. This led to a rift with the European Commission, which is still unresolved. The spread widening was dampened after Moody’s and S&P did not surprise on the negative side in their judgement on Italy’s credit outlook.

Dividend policy

The fund distributes dividend on a quarterly basis. The dividends referred to are target dividends and may be subject to change as a result of market conditions.

ESG Integration policy

For Robeco All Strategy Euro Bonds, ESG factors play an important role in the investment process, both in country analysis and credit analysis. For sovereigns, the 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.

Investment policy

Robeco All Strategy Euro Bonds is an active bond fund looking to optimize returns on a risk adjusted basis. Its benchmark agnostic investment style is well suited to benefit from inefficiencies linked to benchmarks. It applies a top down strategic allocation. The fund benefits from market segmentation and prevailing silo thinking as it can allocate between all of the asset classes within the fixed income universe. The fund performance is driven by multiple drivers, of which country allocation is currently the most dominant. The Fixed Income Allocation portfolio managers focus on strategic asset allocation decisions. This team is responsible for the asset allocation of the fund and is looking at duration and credit strategies to be implemented into the portfolio. The team can also allocate to foreign exchange strategies but this is not the main contributor to performance.The fixed income investment teams focus on asset class specific strategies. The fund benefits from the expertise of each specific team. The team sets up detailed investment theses bases on fundamental research, applying a structured analysis framework that combines both top-down (macro environment & policy, valuation, sentiment & positioning) and bottom-up perspectives (a country's debt sustainability, macro-economic cycle, ESG profile). As such the portfolio managers have created a repeatable process that has led to long term alpha generation. Alpha generation of the fund is based on multiple performance drivers, such as country allocation, duration management and yield curve positioning. Risk budgeting can be adaptive through time in order to capture the most compelling investment opportunities.

Risk policy

Risk management is fully embedded 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') ]}}

Since the start of Q4, combined net bond purchases by the Fed, ECB and BoJ have turned from positive to negative. In our opinion this dynamic will gradually make itself felt in bond markets, via increased upward pressure on long-term yields. Short-term yields are expected to move up as well, but the extent of the rise is limited by what is priced in already. The confrontational stance of the Italian populist government will likely continue, but we think just a little bit of giving in on both sides might already be enough to relieve markets.
