About this fund

This Fund is a feeder Fund and invests at least 85% of its assets in shares of Robeco Capital Growth Funds SICAV – Robeco Global Credits (“the Master”). The Master invests in global credits markets with investment grade credit acting as the core of the global strategy. The Master aims to outperform the benchmark (Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate - Corporates (hedged into EUR)) by taking positions that deviate from the benchmark. The Feeder Fund uses derivatives to hedge the duration of the Master to nearly zero. The duration hedge will lead to intended performance differences as a result of interest rate movements between the Feeder Fund and the Master.

Market development

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

The Global Aggregate Corporate Bond Index returned +1.81% (hedged in euro) as credit spreads tightened and risk free rates moved further down. The 10-year US Treasury yield dropped 12 basis points to 2.00%, and the German 10-year yield decreased 13 basis points to -0.33%. The credit spread on the Global Corporate Bond Index decreased 12 bps to 1.18%. With the Fed and the ECB turning more dovish again, markets are once again increasingly driven by Central Bank policy than by fundamentals, or at least for the time being. Some hinting of a potential resolution of the trade dispute between the US and China during the G20 added to the markets’ optimism. Risky assets performed very well throughout the month. However, rate markets told a different story as interest rates keep moving down, pricing in at least three rate cuts. This points towards a slowdown in economic activity. The Global Corporate Bond Index delivered a positive excess return of 1.24% versus government bonds. US corporate bonds outperformed European corporate bonds with excess returns of respectively 1.34% and 1.12%. High yield (2.10%) outperformed while emerging market credits (0.98%) underperformed global investment grade markets.

Currency policy

All currency risks are hedged into the GBP.

Derivative policy

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.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. The income earned by the fund is reflected in its share price. The fund's entire result is thus reflected in its share price development.

ESG Integration policy

Our analysis of issuers goes beyond the traditional financial factors and includes the issuers’ performance on ESG factors. We deem it essential for a well-informed investment decision to take into account those ESG factors that have the potential to materially impact the financial performance of the issuer. This perfectly matches the basic need to avoid the losers in credit management, as many credit events in the past can be attributed to issues such as poorly designed governance frameworks, environmental issues, or weak health & safety standards. The aim of ESG integration is to improve the risk/return profile of the investments and does not have an impact goal. ESG analysis is fully integrated in the bottom-up security analysis. We have defined key ESG factors per industry, and for every company we analyze how the firm is positioned versus these key ESG factors, and how this impacts the fundamental credit quality.

Expectation of fund manager

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

Despite some encouraging remarks during the G20 summit on a truce, we think the trade war and increasing tariffs will continue going forward. This will impact the global economy. We will have to cope with a cyclical slowdown in growth, more frequent mini spread cycles driven by lack of liquidity and central bank interventions due to fading inflation. Central banks are stubbornly and repeatedly applying the same remedy to cure the patient. We know it is wise not to fight the Fed or the ECB, as QE might return. We do not make it our central thesis to continually trade beta higher and lower. We believe we are in the phase of the credit cycle when stock picking, regional allocations and sectoral trends have a much higher relative probability of being profitable.
