Commentary 31/03/2017

Emerging equities rallied in March on a weaker dollar with MSCI Emerging finishing in green at +1.93%. With less conviction on future rate hikes from FED dollar slipped. Energy was one of the worst performing sectors in March with the Brent price falling -6%. In Asia, China reported strong economic data with the manufacturing PMI increasing to 51.8 (vs 51.7 expected), the highest level in almost 5 years. We have taken profits on high delta names Cez/Mol and Suzuki. Equally, we have reduced semis related names like BE Semiconductors and Teradyne after good stock performance and CB valuation richening. We have rolled to a longer maturity and higher strike our Tencent call options. We have initiated new position in Bangkok Dusit Medical 2019 convertible. The profile of the CB is very convex with just with just 10% premium for 2.5 years maturity. We believe this hospitals operator from Thailand can increase its market share. On the primary side we have seen one small deal from South African miner Royal Bafokeng Paltinum with 1.2 bn ZAR 7% coupon 5 Y convertible, we have passed this deal due to the size and the weak credit of the company. On the other hand we have participated in the US fabless semiconductor company Silicon Lab's new issue of 400 mln USD 1.375% coupon CBs, but only for a small size due to richening, we will monitor the bond to further build up our position. The fund befitted from the position in Yuexiu Transport CB in March with stock up 11.3%, as a toll roads operator the company benefits from cyclical exposure to Chinese economy. Another winner was Haitian, stock advanced 10.78% in March after good earnings report from this machinery company, as sales advanced 10% YoY. On the other hand, Steinhoff contributed negatively to the performance due to a weaknesses in the results of their last acquisition in the US Matress Firm and some risks of sovereign rating downgrade in South Africa.

(1) The rating grades the funds on a scale from 1 to 7. This rating system is based on the average fluctuations of the net asset value over the past five years. It corresponds to the variation range of the portfolio upwards and downwards. If the net asset value is less than 5 years old, the rating is determined by other regulatory calculation methods. Historical data such as those used to calculate the rating may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile. The current category is neither a guarantee nor an objective. Category 1 does not signify a risk-free investment.
