Market development

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

Positive correlation between Treasury yields and credit spreads drove total returns for corporate credit bonds into negative territory in April. In developed markets, investors focus on central bank efforts to get a grip on current elevated inflation numbers. Markets fear that central banks will need to tighten aggressively in the coming period and that only by pushing the economy into a recession, inflation can be contained. In April, 5-year Treasury rates rose 50 bps to 2.96%. At the same time, credit spreads rose in developed markets; spreads on the Bloomberg Global Aggregate-Corporates Index rose 18 bps to 1.42% and spreads on the Bloomberg Global High Yield Index rose 47 bps to 4.75%.The conflict between Ukraine and Russia is felt via commodity prices and supply chain disruptions, which feed into inflation. Russia stopped delivering gas to Poland and Bulgaria, which highlights Europe's dependency on Russian gas deliveries; a tail risk the market seems to ignore.China has implemented strict lockdowns in many cities, which will impact Chinese growth. Emerging markets spreads were relatively stable. The JP Morgan CEMBI Index spread rose 3 bps to 3.10%.

SDG and sustainability considerations are incorporated in the investment process by the means of a target universe, exclusions and ESG integration. The fund solely invests in credits issued by companies with a positive or neutral impact on the SDGs. The impact of issuers on the SDGs is determined by applying Robeco's internally developed three-step SDG Framework. The outcome is a quantified contribution expressed as an SDG score, considering both the contribution to the SDGs (positive, neutral or negative) and the extent of this contribution (high, medium or low). In addition, the fund does not invest in credit issuers that are in breach of international norms or where activities have been deemed detrimental to society following Robeco's exclusion policy. Financially material ESG factors are integrated in the bottom-up security analysis to assess the impact on the issuer's fundamental credit quality. Lastly, where a credit issuer is flagged for breaching international standards in the ongoing monitoring, the issuer will become subject to exclusion.

SDG Contribution

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

The SDG score shows to what extent the portfolio and the benchmark contribute to the 17 UN Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). Scores are assigned to each underlying company using the Robeco SDG Framework, which utilizes a three-step approach to calculate a company’s contribution to the relevant SDGs. The starting point is an assessment of the products offered by a company, followed by the way in which these products are produced, and finally whether the company is exposed to any controversies. The outcome is expressed in a final score which shows the extent to which a company impacts the SDGs on a scale from highly negative (dark red) to highly positive (dark blue). The bar shows the aggregate percentage exposure of the portfolio and the benchmark (shaded) to the different SDG scores. This is then also split out per SDG. As a company can have an impact on several SDGs (or none), the values shown in the report do not sum to 100%.

Expectation of fund manager

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

At the moment, there is a lot of uncertainty around the path of inflation, the Ukraine-Russia conflict and the risk of a recession. Market valuations have started to price in these risks partly. Treasury markets are pricing in a lot of Fed hikes in the coming year. After recent widening, spread markets are pricing in more downside risk. Although in general a recession risk is not fully priced in, some segments in the markets have become attractive. The portfolio yield has increased substantially in recent months, which will support portfolio income in the coming period.
