Market development

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

Equity markets continued the strong upward trend from the first quarter and closed up nearly 4%. The highlight of the month was the start of the Q1 earnings season. With around half of US companies having reported, numbers overall came in less poorly than expected, with earnings down 2.5% versus minus 4% expected earlier in the year. However they are still down year over year. Markets are anticipating earnings numbers to trough now, as economic growth is expected to improve throughout the year. Cyclicals outperformed even though ISM data slumped. The only sector to suffer was the healthcare sector. US elections preparations calling for lower drug pricing and a reform of the healthcare insurance business were headline risks and resulted in a large sell-off.

Currency policy

The fund is allowed to pursue an active currency policy to generate extra returns and can engage in currency hedging transactions.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. The fund retains any income that is earned and so its entire performance is reflected in its share price.

ESG Integration policy

An implementation milestone for the fund, is the successful translation of ESG value drivers into the target price of the analysed stocks. Material ESG factors are fully integrated in the valuation model and can in- or decrease the expected stock price. The key criterion to assess the value driver impact is how the ESG factors affect the company's competitive position. The method was developed over 2013 in collaboration with the Sustainable Investing team in Zurich, which offers proprietary ESG data and an intense dialogue to our equity analysts. From January 2014 onwards, all analyst are required to use this method in their investment cases, which has deepened our discussion and understanding of ESG issues.

Fundamental analysis is carried out using a disciplined approach. The fund will not be constrained by its benchmark and stocks will be bought for their capital-appreciation potential. The fund can anticipate currency developments through active currency management. Risk management is fully integrated into 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') ]}}

Our overall assessment for developed markets is one with a neutral outlook and increasing risks. We think that global economic growth is set to slow next year, driven by a weakening of economic growth in both the US and Europe. The main reason for only having a neutral rating is that we do not see major risks of a global economic recession as yet. We think that the global earnings picture is still relatively robust, even though earnings growth may slow next year. However, we have not seen a meaningful reduction in earnings growth as yet. Valuations have come down across the board, with the US still most expensive, and Europe and emerging markets starting to look particularly cheap. Also, technical and sentiment factors already strike us as neutral to slightly bearish. All in all, we have become marginally more cautious, without the need currently to become overly bearish.
