Commentary 31/03/2017

March was another positive month for most hedge fund strategies since the US elections last November, concluding a strong first quarter for 2017. The US Federal Reserve increased US interest rates mid-month, yet the US dollar declined against most major currencies during the month. Global equity markets posted mixed results as US large caps and the energy sector suffered, whilst the European markets posted strong returns. Commodities declined led by oil, platinum, soybeans and copper, which were partially offset by appreciations in natural gas, palladium and aluminium. Gold declined slightly over the month. In that context, our Global Macro managers posted the strongest returns led by commodity trading over the month in energy, namely oil and natural gas, and in soybeans. One of our Macro managers outperformed particularly well over the month with gains of +11%. Our Multistrategy managers also performed well with gains in relative value and arbitrage strategies. Non-Directional Equity managers posted gains from mean reverting factor based strategies and fundamental low net exposure managers. Event Driven managers posted small gains from Special Situations and Merger Arbitrage, which were offset by distressed strategies. Fixed Income & Credit managers were flat over the month albeit rising rates. Our CTA managers posted a sharp decline in March from systematic trend-following programs that suffered trend reversals. At month-end, we have increased the allocation to CTA (+1.0%) and Non-Directional Equity managers (+0.5%), at the expense of a reduction in Multistrategy (-1.0%) and Fixed Income & Credit (-0.5%).

(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.
