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 market’s 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.

ESG Integration policy

In this fund we look for investments with a positive societal impact, whilst generating healthy financial returns. We define impact as an alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We identify and evaluate the impact that specific credits have on the SDGs, and score all the issuers under coverage of the analysts’ team. These scores categorize credits as having either a Positive, Neutral, or Negative impact on the SDGs. The scores are then used in a screening process, to define the investable universe that exclude credits with a Negative impact on the SDGs. In addition to the universe screening, our credit analysts integrate ESG factors in their analysis of the companies fundamental credit quality to strengthen our ability to assess the downside risk of our credit investments. Furthermore the portfolio’s environmental footprint is actively reduced and a part of the portfolio is allocated to green bonds.

Investment policy

RobecoSAM Global SDG Credits invests in a diversified portfolio of global investment grade corporate bonds. Core of the portfolio is invested in investment grade credits, complemented by best opportunities in High Yield and Emerging Markets The selection of these bonds is based on fundamental analysis. The fund aims to contribute to realizing the UN SDG goals by assessing the SDG score of all companies in the universe. The fund does not invest in companies that do not contribute to these goals. The investment philosophy is based on managing a solid diversified portfolio with a long term view. Companies that don't contribute to the realization of the SDG Goals as set by the UN are excluded from the universe. Top-down beta positioning is based on the outcome of our credit quarterly outlook meeting, which defines the current credit environment and where we are in the credit cycle. This analysis is based on a fundamental, valuation and technical perspective. Bottom-up issuer research is executed by our credit analysts, who undertake  the fundamental analysis. Analyst research reports are discussed in approx. 500 credit committees per year. The portfolio managers are responsible for the portfolio construction. A proprietary developed risk management approach avoids high risk concentration in the portfolio. As the investment process is well-structured and proven over time, it contributes to repeatable performance delivery.

Risk policy

Risk management is fully embedded in 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') ]}}

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.
