Market development

A quick glance at the total returns for US Treasuries and Bunds would suggest October was a quiet month for government bonds. In reality, the month was characterized by significant volatility in especially front end rates, fierce yield curve flattening and sizeable spread moves between countries. October returns were negative in the dollar bloc countries, for instance, as central banks either hiked rates (RBNZ), signaled a reduction in asset purchases (BoC), or loosened some control over their yield curve (RBA). Front-end rates also rose and the back end flattened in the US, UK and Eurozone as the market was questioning central banks' tolerance for the current higher inflation, or at least inflation uncertainty, in these markets. Within the Eurozone, Italy, Portugal, Greece and to a lesser extent Spain, suffered from widening in spreads over Bunds as ECB President Lagarde confirmed that PEPP would end in March. Volatility in Asian HY markets continued, driven by distressed China property credits. US IG corporate bonds had slightly positive excess returns for the month.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute a dividend.

ESG Integration policy

Climate change considerations are fully integrated in the research process, from an impact and risk perspective. The greenhouse gas emission intensity of issuers is a starting point for determining the impact on climate change, and in our research process we add a forward looking element by assessing the decarbonization potential, strategy and targets. This is to ensure the strategy follows the desired decarbonization trajectory. This may include issuers whose emissions are currently high and that are making an effort to reduce these. Our approach is to invest in sovereign and corporate issuers that allocate capital towards sustainable economic activities. Our analysis of issuers goes beyond the traditional financial factors and includes the issuers’ performance on ESG factors. ESG factors play an important role in the investment process, including climate related risks, both in country analysis and credit analysis. For investments in sovereigns, Country Sustainability Ranking and underlying research is used as input for assessment of the structural outlook for a country. For credits, the ESG analysis is part of the fundamental scoring by the sector analyst.

Investment policy

RobecoSAM Climate Global Bonds is an actively managed fund that invests in bonds globally. The selection of these bonds is based on fundamental analysis. The fund's objective is to provide long term capital growth.The fund has sustainable investment as its objective within the meaning of Article 9 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. The fund contributes to keeping the maximum global temperature rise well-below 2◦C by reducing the carbon footprint intensity of the portfolio. The fund integrates ESG (Environmental, Social and corporate Governance) in the investment process, applies an exclusion list basis controversial behavior, products (including controversial weapons, tobacco, palm oil and fossil fuel) while avoiding investment in thermal coal, weapons, military contracting and companies that severely violate labor conditions, next to engagement. The fund invests in worldwide bonds and other marketable debt securities and instruments (which may include short dated fixed or floating rate securities) issued or guaranteed by OECD member states and by companies based in OECD countries. The fund is managed against a benchmark that is consistent with the sustainable investment objectives pursued by the fund. It aims to align with the Paris Agreement requirements on greenhouse gas emission reduction. For corporate bonds the Benchmark aims to represent the performance of an investment strategy that is aligned with the technical standards for EU Paris Aligned benchmarks in areas such as exclusions and carbon reduction objectives. For investments in government bonds in the Benchmark, the long term aim is to strive for a 7% year-on-year decarbonization as long as this is realistically feasible and technical standards are not applicable. The Benchmark differs from a broad market index in that the latter does not take into account in its methodology any criteria for alignment with the Paris Agreement on greenhouse gas emission reduction and related exclusions.

Risk policy

Risk management is fully embedded in the investment process so as to ensure that the fund's positions remain within set limits at all times.

Expectation of fund manager

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

Government bond yields have either returned to the year-to-date highs seen in Q2, or bounced from levels close to these peaks. But, unlike earlier this year, the latest increase has been increasingly led by a repricing of the outlook for central bank rates. The uncertainty around inflation creates room for some further repricing of expected official rates, but the risk-reward of being short front-end rates has become less favorable after the recent move. We remain underweight duration and continue to favor curve flatteners, but have gradually reduced positioning. The Fed announced the start of the tapering of its asset purchases, which will be reduced by USD 15 bln per month, starting in November. This should end purchases by June next year. This announcement was well flagged and in line with expectations. At the press conference, Powell stressed the role of supply chain disruptions in the current inflation and expressed the wish to see a further healing of the job market before hiking rates. Credit spreads are still priced for perfection and we remain underweight overall IG beta but with a preference for EUR IG versus US.
