Market development

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

Equity markets began the year at a torrid pace, with the MSCI World Index returning 11% through February. Momentum slowed during March as sentiment turned cautious. Global growth concerns once again resurfaced. European Central Bank officials cut expansion estimates and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development downgraded the growth outlook for a group of 20 nations. In the US, a jobs report showing the weakest hiring since more than a year added to concerns. A dovish turn by the Fed did not spur risk appetite, leading to a surge in defensive sectors.

Expectation of fund manager

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

The first three months of 2019 were a microcosm of the market environment of 2018:  growth & momentum led the market higher for the most part followed by decidedly defensive sentiment in the closing period.   Neither environment favors our bottom-up, fundamentally focused stock selection process.   We do not know when the whipsawing between the extremes of risk-on and risk-off will end.   Based on historical comparisons, there is little-to-no slack left in valuation levels of defensive and bond-proxy stocks.   The concept that dividend yield is a quasi pari passu substitute for investment grade fixed income becomes riskier with each risk-off surge.  This should set up greater performance potential for our portfolio once the excess unwinds.   As always, the portfolio remains well positioned, with holdings that reflect Boston Partners’ 3 Circle characteristics – attractive valuations, solid fundamentals, and identifiable catalysts.
