Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -1.03%. The fund delivered a positive total return driven by much corporate spread tightening. The fund performed similarly to the index. The excess return of our benchmark, the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Corporate (hedged in euros) versus Treasuries was 0.64%. The fund's beta was slightly below 1 during the month, which made a negative contribution. Issuer selection made a positive contribution. The banking sector added to performance, specifically subordinated issuers such as Raiffeisen Bank, Allied Irish Bank and Bank of Ireland. Other sectors, such as consumer cyclical and capital goods, also added to performance for the month.

Market development

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

The Global Aggregate Corporate Bond Index returned -0.35% (hedged to EUR) last month. Credit spread and interest rate moves were mixed. The 10-year US Treasury yield moved to 0.91% from 0.84%. And the German 10-year yield remained unchanged at -0.57%. The credit spread on the Global Corporate Bond Index tightened 7 bps to 1.00%.The final month of a very interesting year. Fiscal and monetary actions removed most if not all systematic risk in the market. A Brexit deal was signed at the last possible moment. And new (third) lockdowns materialized in Europe during Christmas. In the US, transfer payments and additional unemployment benefits have been increased until mid-March. The ECB has announced more of the same: a rolling over of the PEPP program and TLTROs. Sectors that have been hit hardest by the virus, such as leisure, are still slow to recover, despite increased occupancy levels at hotels. The positive sentiment changed again in December, as fund flows slowed down, valuations tightened, macro rhetoric increased and most important of all, Covid-19 cases increased in developed markets. And yet, simply the best set of possible outcomes is priced in by the markets.

Expectation of fund manager

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

Last year was a year of many opportunities. There was a beta opportunity in March, a cyclical recovery opportunity in June and, later in the year, a Covid-19 sector theme opportunity. During this time, we did rigorous research in order to keep our portfolio free from the effects of defaults and accidents. We once again succeeded, with much lower defaults in high yield than the index, and not a single one in investment grade.It will be more difficult from here onwards. The possible variation in economic and technical outcomes is large. The year will be either boring or bearish. There is hardly any room for aggressive tightening by central banks. At best, we will see some carry, roll down and certain sectors recovering from Covid-19. While there is something left on the table, it is not much. We cannot afford to have policy errors, rising yields or inflation, nor any oil price, political or geopolitical shock. There is just not enough cushion left. We faced the same asymmetry this time last year. So, it will either be a boring year, with a small excess return, or a bearish one, should one of these events occur.
