Commentary 28/04/2017

The first half of April was marked by heightened volatility on global markets with US airstrikes in Syria and renewed tensions with North Korea. Political uncertainty of the 1st tour of French elections added to that risk-off mode. However, as Emmanuel Macron was in the lead ahead of the 2nd tour risk assets rallied strongly into the month end globally. Eurostoxx 600 finished the month at +1.56%, with CAC 40 outperforming at 2.83% and OAT/Bund spread tightening by 25 bps. S&P 500 and Nikkei participated as well in the rally and ended the month at +0.91% and +1.52% respectively. Emerging markets ended the month +2.33% despite weaker oil. WTI slipped 2.51% in April on supply concerns as Libya restarted production in two oilfields and on weaker gasoline demand. The latest FED minutes indicated the willingness of the central bank to reduce the size of the balance sheet. The ECB didn't indicate any shift in its policy even as positive economic momentum continued in Eurozone as PMI hit a 6 year high at 56.4 and core inflation came in higher than expected at 1.2%. Cyclical and banking stocks were among the major winners of the rally in European markets. The fund benefited from its exposure to financials via call options on Credit Agricole (we added these just ahead of the 1st tour), ING; from French names like Ubisoft, LVMH, Cap Gemini. During the month we have taken profits on our Sanofi call options, reduced LVMH and restriked higher in the money calls on ING, Telecom Italia, Illumina. We have added to our position in recently is issued Silicon Lab CB. We have taken profits on Ineos 24 straight bond. We have added new position in Parpublica/Galp, this short term exchangeable bond has very high gamma. On the negative side the fund suffered from its oil exposure: Nabors and Schlumberger reported weaker than expected Q1 earnings and ENI slid on weaker oil. On the primary side we have participated Neurocrine Biosciences' new 450 mln USD 2024 2.25% CB. The company that develops medications for neurological and endocrine hormone-related diseases came to the CB market to finance its R&D pipeline and to commercialize its recently approved drug.

(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.
