Market development

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

Government bonds posted negative returns in August, with Australia being the only main market that managed to end the month in the green. German Bunds continued their rally into the first half of August, but gave back these gains and more in the final days. The move upwards in German yields was triggered by comments from ECB officials (e.g. Knot, Holzmann) on the ECB's PEPP purchases and by a jump in inflation. Other European bond markets followed the rise in German interest rates. US Treasury yields were pushed upwards early in the month, as a result of a hawkish speech by Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida and by a strong payrolls growth number for July. Fed Chair Powell's speech at the Jackson Hole conference was regarded as dovish. He acknowledged the growing willingness to initiate tapering in 2021, but also underlined the transitory nature of the current high inflation. US IG corporate bonds had slightly negative excess returns for the month, with spreads 1 bp wider, while EUR IG had slightly positive excess returns, with spreads 2 bps wider.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute a dividend.

ESG Integration policy

Climate change considerations are fully integrated in the research process, from an impact and risk perspective. The greenhouse gas emission intensity of issuers is a starting point for determining the impact on climate change, and in our research process we add a forward looking element by assessing the decarbonization potential, strategy and targets. This is to ensure the strategy follows the desired decarbonization trajectory. This may include issuers whose emissions are currently high and that are making an effort to reduce these. Our approach is to invest in sovereign and corporate issuers that allocate capital towards sustainable economic activities. Our analysis of issuers goes beyond the traditional financial factors and includes the issuers’ performance on ESG factors. ESG factors play an important role in the investment process, including climate related risks, both in country analysis and credit analysis. For investments in sovereigns, 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

RobecoSAM Climate Global Bonds is an actively managed fund that invests in bonds globally. The selection of these bonds is based on fundamental analysis. The fund's objective is to provide long term capital growth.The fund has sustainable investment as its objective within the meaning of Article 9 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. The fund contributes to keeping the maximum global temperature rise well-below 2◦C by reducing the carbon footprint intensity of the portfolio. The fund integrates ESG (Environmental, Social and corporate Governance) in the investment process, applies an exclusion list basis controversial behavior, products (including controversial weapons, tobacco, palm oil and fossil fuel) while avoiding investment in thermal coal, weapons, military contracting and companies that severely violate labor conditions, next to engagement. The fund invests in worldwide bonds and other marketable debt securities and instruments (which may include short dated fixed or floating rate securities) issued or guaranteed by OECD member states and by companies based in OECD countries. The fund is managed against a benchmark that is consistent with the sustainable investment objectives pursued by the fund. It aims to align with the Paris Agreement requirements on greenhouse gas emission reduction. For corporate bonds the Benchmark aims to represent the performance of an investment strategy that is aligned with the technical standards for EU Paris Aligned benchmarks in areas such as exclusions and carbon reduction objectives. For investments in government bonds in the Benchmark, the long term aim is to strive for a 7% year-on-year decarbonization as long as this is realistically feasible and technical standards are not applicable. The Benchmark differs from a broad market index in that the latter does not take into account in its methodology any criteria for alignment with the Paris Agreement on greenhouse gas emission reduction and related exclusions.

Risk policy

Risk management is fully embedded in the investment process so as to ensure that the fund's positions remain within set limits at all times.

Expectation of fund manager

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

After the rally in June-July, German Bunds have fallen back to levels close to year-to-date lows. We see room for the recent bounce in interest rates to continue. Looking beyond the horizon of the next few weeks, we have some reservations on the upward potential for yields. For the ECB we do not expect any serious debate about a reduction in PEPP purchases until later in the year. The Fed will likely start tapering purchases this year, but this has been well flagged by now. Consensus positioning still seems tilted towards underweights, making it harder for yields to rise. Credit spreads are still priced for perfection and we remain underweight overall IG and HY beta, but with a preference for EUR IG versus US.
