About this fund

This Fund is a feeder Fund ( the “Feeder Fund”) and as such invests at least 85% of its assets in class Z2H shares of Robeco Capital Growth Funds SICAV – Robeco European High Yield Bonds (“the Master”). The Master is a sub-fund of Robeco Capital Growth Funds SICAV, a Luxembourg open-ended investment company with variable capital. The Master invests in bonds with a sub-investment grade rating, issued primarily by European and US issuers denominated in EUR. The selection of these bonds is based on fundamental analysis. The portfolio is broadly diversified, with a structural bias to the higher rated part in high yield (BB/B). Performance drivers are the top-down beta positioning as well as bottom-up issuer selection. The Master aims to outperform the benchmark by taking positions that deviate from the benchmark. The benchmark of the Master is Bloomberg Barclays Pan-Eur. HY Corp. ex Fin. 2,5% Issuer Cap (hedged into EUR). The Feeder Fund uses derivatives to hedge the duration of the Master. The duration hedge will lead to intended performance differences between the Feeder Fund and the Master. Interest rate movements will have a different effect on the Master and the Feeder Fund.

Market development

HY ended 2019 in the same fashion as the full year developed: cheerful and with a strong performance. Spreads tightened vigorously, turning 2019 into a double-digit return year, a strong rebound from the bear market in 2018. Underlying government bond yields rose in December, lowering the total return on European HY somewhat. The strong year-end rally was helped by some positive news about a phase-one trade deal between the US and China, and by further evidence that major central banks will stay away from any tightening measures for the foreseeable future. The removal of a no-deal Brexit scenario – at least for the foreseeable future – helped sentiment as well. New issue activity was actually pretty busy for a December month, making 2019 an average issuance-year with some 60 billion in primary issuance, of which almost two thirds in the BB space – a record percentage. HY fund flows turned mildly positive after a year of hefty outflows in 2018. The default rate remains low, at just over 1%. The European High Yield Index spread tightened by as many as 40 bps for the month and by over 200 bps for the year to around 300 bps.

Expectation of fund manager

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

We are still convinced that we are approaching the end of the credit cycle. The US economy has become more vulnerable, with corporate earnings under pressure and a weakening industrial environment. The consumer is holding up well, supported by a strong labor market. But there are early signs of softening in these labor data. In Europe, the picture is similar. Going forward, a lot will depend on global trade disputes. A swift resolution of the US-China trade dispute would be very positive, but we think this is unlikely. On the other hand, an additional dispute between Europe and the US would be very negative for global trade, corporate earnings and investor sentiment. A bright spot are central banks, which continue to be very accommodative. In high yield, BB bonds have been driven to expensive levels, while CCCs are relatively cheap: a bifurcated universe in which buying the average spread is not an option. The choice is between safe but expensive BBs or trading down in quality to pick up yield, with a real risk of write-downs if the cycle turns. We stay up in quality and focus with bottom-up research on finding mispriced opportunities, of which there are currently only few.
