Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -0.83%. In June, the strategy’s return lagged the benchmark. The portfolio started the month with overweight duration positions in all three regions. The overweight position in Germany was closed early in June, but the overweight positions in Japan and the US detracted from performance as bond yields rose. During the month, the model reacted to the increased optimism (as reflected in equity markets) and the trend of rising yields by closing the remaining overweight positions and opening an underweight position in Germany. However, yields fell back as optimism about the recovery faded while the virus kept spreading. Due to the new underweight, the strategy could not participate in full in the rally. The tilts in the underlying portfolio contributed positively to the performance. All active duration positions are based on the outcomes of our quantitative duration model.

Date Amount

Market development

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

Yields rose sharply in the first week of June. Bonds sold off in response to the heated risk sentiment and a huge positive surprise in US payrolls (+2.5 mln jobs while -7.5 mln was expected). Bonds recovered fully from this sell-off in the rest of the month. The ECB meeting was dovish, with the decision to increase the PEPP bond purchases by a larger-than-expected EUR 600 bln. At the 10 June FOMC meeting the Fed confirmed that official rates will be on hold for a long time to come. As the sharp rise in yields from the first week reversed in the rest of the month, government bond returns for the full month of June were close to zero in June: 0.04% for US Treasuries, 0.3% for German Bunds and -0.5% for Japanese government bonds. The negative returns in Japanese government bonds resulted from a steepening of the curve.

Investment policy

Robeco QI Global Dynamic Duration invests worldwide in government bonds with investment grade quality. The fund uses bond futures to adjust the duration (interest-rate sensitivity) of the portfolio. Duration positioning is based on our proprietary duration model, which predicts the direction of the bond markets using financial market data. The aim of the fund is to protect against rising yields and to benefit from rallying bond markets. The fund is quantitatively driven, as the duration positioning is always based on the outcome of our duration model. The model uses market expectations for variables such as economic growth, inflation and monetary policy, as well as technical variables such as valuation, seasonality and trend to predict the direction of bond markets. Depending on the outcome of the model, the duration of the basis portfolio is increased or decreased by maximum 6 years. The model has shown a solid track record since its inception in 1994. The quantitative duration has proven to have forecasting ability in periods with rising yields as well as in periods with declining yields. Therefore Robeco QI Global Dynamic Duration serves as a very good diversifier in a fixed income portfolio and can function as an airbag during adverse markets.Weekly positioning updates are available upon request.

Risk policy

Risk management systems continuously monitor the extent to which the portfolio differs from the benchmark. Extreme discrepancies are prevented in this way. The duration model makes use of futures, which can lead to leverage.

Expectation of fund manager

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

The fund's duration policy is fully driven by the outcomes of our proprietary quantitative duration model. At the start of July, the strategy had an underweight position in Germany. This was mainly driven by negative scores for its monetary policy, valuation and trend variables. For the US and Japan the model has a neutral outlook as the negative variables are offset by positive scores for monetary policy in the US and valuation in Japan.
