Investment objective and policy

BL-Global 50 invests around 50% of its assets in bonds and money market instruments and 50% in equities. Geographically, the fund invests in Europe and the United States, and from time to time in Japan and the emerging markets. The fund's aim is to achieve better returns than the bond markets, while keeping well below the volatility associated with pure equity investments.

Management report - 2nd Quarter 2017

During the second quarter of 2017, the fund's net equity exposure remained low. At the end of June, 50% of the fund was invested in equities, with 16.5% of this allocation hedged through the sale of futures. The bond weighting came to 31.5%, of which 17.5% was in US Treasuries. Certificates investing in physical gold accounted for 12% of the portfolio. The portfolio's geographic allocation was as follows: Europe 22% (6% hedged), United States 20.5% (10.5% hedged), Japan 5% and emerging markets 2.5%. At the end of June, the duration was 4.5. The portfolio's credit risk is limited to Germany and United States sovereign risk. The portfolio continues to be positioned defensively. The optimism expressed by the political and monetary authorities about the strength of global economic growth is not reflected in real economic statistics. On the other hand, we are expecting a slowdown in the global economic situation in the coming months which could impede corporate earnings growth. The profusion of political risks is a further reason to adopt a defensive positioning.
