Commentary 31/03/2017

The Dutch elections, the Brexit kick-off, and trouble in the Trump administration have barely affected credit spreads. Approaching elections in France have, however, added some volatility to government bond markets. The corporate reporting season has ended, and, in general, there have been no unpleasant surprises to report. The high yield credit market in Europe remains largely driven by QE (which will dip in April to €60 billion in asset repurchasing from €80 billion per month), and by technical factors largely benefiting the issuers. So far the market has been little affected by Theresa May's triggering of Article 50, and Donald Trump's setback in his attempt to reform Obamacare. The primary market was also well supported in March with more than €13 billion in new issues, most intended to refinance existing bonds. Despite outflows from some high yield funds this month, credit spreads have remained low and a note of shortage persists. Yields were negative on paper rated BB (-0.23%) and B (-0.05%), but positive on CCC (+0.25%) this month, with an overall high yield return of -0.17%. Most issuers were refinancing their debt. With the exception of Loxam, which financed its Lavendon acquisition with three tranches totalling €850 million, and Spie (Ba3/BB), which financed its takeover of SAG via an unsecured €600 million line dated 2024. Other major issues included Peugeot's (Ba2) €600 million 2024, Federal-Mogul (B1/B-) in two tranches (including one floater) for a total €715 million dated 2022 and 2024. Meanwhile, Saipem (Ba1/BB+) entered the market with a €500 million note dated 2022.

(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.
