Management report - 1st Quarter 2017

The minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve's monetary policy committee (FOMC) confirmed the US central bank's increasing confidence in the economic situation. It is therefore expecting to continue raising interest rates and its members discussed beginning the process of reducing the size of its balance sheet this year. Before then, the Fed is also expected to integrate a more accommodative fiscal policy. Credit spreads were volatile during the quarter but ended the period on a more or less stable note. Short-term interest rates, particularly the 3-month Libor to which our portfolio is indexed, rose from 0.99789% at the end of December to 1.14956%. At this stage, we are expecting the Fed to continue tightening its monetary policy. The market is anticipating two further interest rate hikes this year. The fund continues to invest mainly in systemically important investment-grade floating- and fixed-rate bonds with residual maturity of less than 12 months, while at the same time retaining a sizable cash reserve.
