Investment objective and policy

The fund invests principally in bonds issued in the currencies of the leading industrialised countries (without the Yen). In addition, some 20% of the assets are invested in emerging market bonds. On average the compartment is invested by about ¾ in the euro zone and by about ¼ in the dollar zone. Its key objective is to achieve a regular income.

Management report - 1st Quarter 2017

The eurozone bond market posted a slight decline across the board in the first quarter of the year. Over the period, the benchmark 10-year Germany government bond yield inched up from 0.21% to 0.31%. In the first two months of the quarter, inflation continued its upward trend, from 1.1% to 2% between December and February. In terms of monetary policies, following on from its initial hike of 25 basis points, the Federal Reserve embarked on a second 25-point hike in March. Meanwhile, even though the ECB left its monetary policy unchanged, its pronouncements are now taking a more optimistic tone. In March, it raised its 2017 growth forecasts for the eurozone from 1.7% to 1.8%. It noted the decline in the risk of deflation and the fall in unemployment, which now stands at 9.5%. Improving conditions in emerging countries were reflected on the markets. Growth is trending upwards in all regions. Inflation is stabilising and enabling countries like Brazil and India to ease their monetary policies. The JP Morgan emerging market debt index in USD, the EMBI Global Diversified, gained 3.87%. Index spreads narrowed by nearly 31 basis points.
