Commentary 28/02/2017

MSCI Emerging index posted positive performance in February +1.68% despite dollar gains. Chinese equities outperformed broader emerging markets index, specifically, banking sector was helped by better NPLs, higher yields, stable credit growth and somewhat moderated property risk. In China, the manufacturing PMI showed signs of accelerating growth, improving to 51.6 from 51.3 in January, ahead of consensus expectations. In the meantime, the National People's Congress will begin in early March and is likely to set targets and priorities for the year. Russian equities on the other hand went lower, as ETFs suffered outflows for first time since US elections. Oil market volatility continued to fall, with 30-day volatility in the price of Brent crude now at 20.7% (a two-year low). The per barrel price has remained stable around $56 for a couple of months now as OPEC's promise of production cuts have offset record US stockpiles. The fund benefitted from Advanced Semiconductor Engineering 2018 CB as the company reported stronger margins in its EMS business and higher revenues +6%QoQ, subsequently we took profits on this name as the CB was trading at ~85% delta. As a replacement to ASE bond we have participated in the primary of Microchip Technology 2027 1.625% subordinated convertible, this US producer of microcontrollers and memory chips generates around 60% of revenues in Asia. We have also participated for a small size in the new Severstal 2022 0 coupon convertible due to its attractive technical profile, waiting for a an announcement on EU import duties on HRC from Russia to increase the position. Another positive contributor on the month was 2020, Chinese online travel company listed on NASDAQ, reported better than expected Q4 results with 2% beat on revenues, driven by higher air ticket volumes, in addition operating margin improved 4.6% YoY. On the other hand Cemex 18&20 CBs contributed negatively to the performance in February even though the construction materials company posted good Q4 results with strong free cash flow generation at 544 mln USD aided by 392 mln USD reduction in working capital.

(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.
