Market development

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

In September, we saw several events that could disrupt markets, but so far the impact on credit spreads has been muted. Most volatility was seen in the Chinese real estate sector. It seems that a default of Evergrande, a company with a USD 300 billion balance sheet, is imminent. In Europe, low inventory levels of gas caused gas and electricity prices to spike eightfold compared to last year's winter prices. Oil surpassed the USD 80 mark and other commodity markets also performed strongly. In addition, in some sectors there are shortages in labor and supply bottlenecks. These disruptions on the supply side could have a significant impact on individual companies. Car manufacturers cutting production because of chip shortages is a clear example. The United States will soon reach the debt ceiling, an issue that will need to be resolved quickly to prevent a shutdown of the government.Central banks have moved away from their overly dovish stance. The ECB has recalibrated the net monthly purchases and the Fed has signaled a potential 2022 rate hike. Government bond yields have moved sharply higher, as headline inflation has risen to new highs.

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 of companies. 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 companies 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. 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, including risks stemming from climate change. 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. ESG analysis is fully integrated in the bottom-up security analysis.

Expectation of fund manager

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

Most likely, the credit market will at best deliver a coupon excess return. A boring year, in other words. We think it is better to be positioned on the cautious side. 'All signs on green' has become the widely shared view for credit, and as a contrarian investor that is a red flag to us. This is a market that no longer compensates for tail risks and which is vulnerable to negative surprises. Confirmation biases rule. Although any other technical factor is dwarfed by what the Fed and ECB are doing, we believe it is still worth looking at other potential market drivers. The marginal change in policy is negative. We are moving from extremely to very accommodative policies. This is not least because, as the initial Covid shock demonstrated, if a left-hand tail surprise is big enough, spreads can still widen materially in the short run – even when QE is already in operation. Given the very low dispersion in markets, it no longer pays to reach out for the riskier names. Nevertheless, we still find opportunities in banks, rising stars and some idiosyncratic cases. Our positioning is consistent across all credit categories.
