Investment objective

The objective is to grow the value of its assets in the medium term (3 to 5 years). The assets of the Sub-Fund are predominantly, but not exclusively, invested in convertible or exchangeable bonds with underlying assets in the eurozone. The Sub-Fund seeks to optimise the risk/return ratio over the specified period by diversifying its sources of return – underlying assets, sector, coupon, issuer, interest rate and currency – based on a systematic analysis of the various exposures.

Commentary 31/03/2017

European equity markets continued to rise fueled by an accelerating EPS growth expected by the end of 2017. Investors could hope a steady growth rate of 13,3% compared with 12% planned at the beginning of the year in the Euro Zone. The far right failed its first major test during the Ducth election making investors more optimistic and confident (maybe wrongly) about the upcoming political events in France and Germany. Oil prices fading calmed down inflation risks putting fixed income markets in a better shape. New issues in Europe came with a strong pace from 4,2 billion in the first 3 months in 2016 to 7,5 billion during the same period this year. We participated in the new issues of BASF and SNAM. Bonds have been fairly priced and we see upside on the underlying for both. We have sold both STMicroelectronics 2019 and 2021 as equity sensitivity stand above 80%. We remain pretty positive on the name and we will try to find an entry point again. The news regarding European Union not adding more preliminary duties on hot-rolled steel from Russia triggered us to increase our holdings in Severstal 2022. We have reduced or/and sold a couple of names like ING, Philips, Peugeot, Veolia, IAG and Adidas to maintain equity sensitivity of the funds below 40%. We restruck lower our call options on Generali to get more equity sensitivity after Intesa Sanpaolo failed to make a takeover bid on the Italian insurer. We have increased the portion of names linked to energy sector by investing in call options on ENI and TechnipFMC. We have benefitted from our absence on German real estate. Ageas Fresh continues to add value as the instrument experience a revival. Both 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. We still hold put-spread 3,300 / 3150 over June 2017. We remain confident in the European economy recovery, but French elections are looming and could bring further downside risks in the short term. Primary issuances should remain steady.

(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.
