Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was 0.76%. The fund performance was positive in May. The decline in Treasury yields had a positive impact on the fund's total return in May.Credit exposure made a small negative contribution in May, as credit spreads widened over the month. Our holding in bank CoCos did relatively well and contributed positively. Our holdings in subordinated insurance made a negative contribution.Bonds for Novolipetsk Steel showed some price recovery, which contributed positively to the fund's performance. The fund also benefited from the strong performance in several US high yield names like Altice USA and Sprint. In the negative column, several insurance holdings like Swiss Re and Prudential appear. The holding in Cellnex also contributed negatively

Date Amount

Market development

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

The month of May was marked by investors struggling to determine if inflation or growth fears will be the driving force for markets going forward. In the first weeks of May, growth fears were the dominant market theme. In the US, retailers like Walmart reported weak results and US housing data disappointed. In Treasury markets we saw a decline in yields and the 5Y yield bottomed at 2.71%. The growth fears also led to gradually rising credit spreads. In the last days of May we saw a shift in sentiment, as inflation again became the dominant theme and growth concerns faded. Treasury yields increased and the 5Y rate closed the month at 2.81%. With fewer concerns about the economy, spreads recovered in the second half of May. Spreads on the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate-Corporates Index rose 1 bp to 1.43% and spreads on the Bloomberg Barclays Global High Yield Index rose 27 bps to 5.02%.In emerging markets, China finally relaxed some of its strict Covid policies. This should relieve some growth concerns and reduce global supply chain constraints. Most Latin American countries continue to do relatively well due to higher commodity prices. Emerging market spreads were relatively stable.

ESG Integration policy

The fund’s sustainable investment objective is to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG and sustainability considerations are incorporated in the investment process by the means of a target universe, exclusions and ESG integration. The fund solely invests in credits issued by companies with a positive or neutral impact on the SDGs. The impact of issuers on the SDGs is determined by applying Robeco's internally developed three-step SDG Framework. The outcome is a quantified contribution expressed as an SDG score, considering both the contribution to the SDGs (positive, neutral or negative) and the extent of this contribution (high, medium or low). In addition, the fund does not invest in credit issuers that are in breach of international norms or where activities have been deemed detrimental to society following Robeco's exclusion policy. Financially material ESG factors are integrated in the bottom-up security analysis to assess the impact on the issuer's fundamental credit quality. Lastly, where a credit issuer is flagged for breaching international standards in the ongoing monitoring, the issuer will become subject to exclusion.

The SDG score shows to what extent the portfolio and the benchmark contribute to the 17 UN Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). Scores are assigned to each underlying company using the Robeco SDG Framework, which utilizes a three-step approach to calculate a company’s contribution to the relevant SDGs. The starting point is an assessment of the products offered by a company, followed by the way in which these products are produced, and finally whether the company is exposed to any controversies. The outcome is expressed in a final score which shows the extent to which a company impacts the SDGs on a scale from highly negative (dark red) to highly positive (dark blue). The bar shows the aggregate percentage exposure of the portfolio and the benchmark (shaded) to the different SDG scores. This is then also split out per SDG. As a company can have an impact on several SDGs (or none), the values shown in the report do not sum to 100%.

Expectation of fund manager

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

At the moment, there is a lot of uncertainty around the path of inflation, the Ukraine-Russia conflict and the risk of a recession. Market valuations have started to price in these risks partly. Treasury markets are pricing in a lot of Fed hikes in the coming year. After recent widening, spread markets are pricing in more downside risk. Although in general a recession risk is not fully priced in, some segments in the markets have become attractive. The portfolio yield has increased substantially in recent months, which will support portfolio income in the coming period.
