Market development

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

The global high yield market came under some pressure in September, resulting in a negative total return of around -1% for the month. Election jitters, decreasing chances of a second round of federal stimulus, increasing global economic concerns, the uncertainty relating to a pickup in virus cases especially in Europe and heavy supply in the first two weeks resulted in wider spreads across high yields. Issuers are locking in ‘low’ coupons and stacking up liquidity for any near-term virus uncertainty. Gross monthly high yield issuance reached the fifth highest total on record with close to EUR 50 billion being printed. On the other hand, flows were negative during the month, which followed five consecutive months of inflows totaling a combined figure of close to USD 60 bln. The market demonstrated wide dispersion in performance as lower-rated market segments and sectors that were heavily impacted by Covid-19 outperformed higher-rated sectors. As oil prices fell over the course of the month, energy-related sectors remained under pressure. Spreads finished the month 36 bps wider at a level of 510 bps. The average yield to worst of the global high yield index ended the month at 5.47%.

Currency policy

All currency risks are hedged.

Derivative policy

RobecoSAM SDG High Yield Bonds make use of derivatives for hedging purposes as well as for investment purposes. These derivatives are liquid.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. The income earned by the fund is reflected in its share price. The fund's entire result is thus reflected in its share price development.

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 company’s fundamental credit quality to strengthen our ability to assess the downside risk of our credit investments. Engagement and RobecoSAM's exclusion policy are also form part of the ESG integration policy.

Investment policy

RobecoSAM SDG High Yield Bonds invests in a diversified portfolio of global corporate bonds with a sub-investment grade rating, with a structural bias to the higher rated part in high yield. The selection of these bonds is based on fundamental analysis. The fund applies a screening process, using RobecoSAM’s SDG framework, to select issuers that contribute to realizing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The fund excludes companies that contribute negatively to these goals. RobecoSAM’s SDG framework scores companies based on the magnitude and quality of their contributions to the SDGs through their products, services and operations. Engagement, ESG integration and RobecoSAM's exclusion policy also form part of the investment policy. The fund aims to outperform the Bloomberg Barclays Global High Yield Corporate Index over a full credit cycle. The investment process is based on a top-down analysis of credit markets, combined with thorough bottom-up issuer selection. The investment philosophy is based on contribution to the SDGs but also deliver attractive financial returns for our investors. RobecoSAM SDG High Yield Bonds is managed within our credit team which consists of ten portfolio managers and twenty-two credit analysts. Within the team, Sander Bus, Roeland Moraal and Christiaan Lever are responsible for high yield. Sander has been involved in the mainstream fund since inception in 1998, Roeland joined in 2003. The portfolio managers are responsible for the construction and management of the credit portfolios, whereas the analysts cover the team's fundamental research. The duration of the portfolio is managed in line with the index and currency exposure is hedged. A proprietary in-house developed risk management approach avoids high risk concentration in the portfolio. Holdings in equities can only appear in the portfolio as a result of corporate actions and/or debt restructuring. It is not the intention of the portfolio manager to use options or swaptions. 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') ]}}

We are still in the midst of the largest global health crisis seen in a century. The world awaits a vaccine that will enable us to return to our normal lives. The market has already received its shot, though, in the form of unprecedented monetary and fiscal support for the private sector. Do fundamentals still matter in an environment where the central bank ‘put’ has overwhelmed everything else? Longer term, we have no doubt that fundamentals still matter. After the initial shock, macro data in Q3 surprised to the upside compared to very downbeat expectations. This has helped risk markets. But the momentum of the recovery is clearly fading now and positive surprises have ceased. Spread levels are at or below the long-term average for all segments of the market. Systemic risk is suppressed by central banks, idiosyncratic risk certainly is not! At the moment our beta is already below one – and we keep it there. We are convinced that there will be opportunities to add or reduce risk in the coming months, not only from a top-down perspective but also in individual issuers or sectors. There is still a lot of volatility in Covid-sensitive sectors, which from time to time offer good value.
