Strategy

Investment objective and policy

BL-Equities Europe invests in European equities with no restriction with regard to market capitalisation. The structure of this fund is not linked to a benchmark index, but results from the addition of individual investment opportunities. The fund aims to achieve long-term capital gains.

Management report - 1st Quarter 2021

Buoyed by a strong month in March, the MSCI Europe rose 8.24% in the first quarter. European markets were boosted by the global covid vaccination campaign and the resulting improvement in economic indicators and corporate earnings, rising interest rates and reduced political risk in Europe. These factors fuelled the continued rotation towards more cyclical 'value' stocks at the end of 2020, with these sectors benefiting from earnings revisions well above the market average. In this context, BL Equities Europe lagged the market with a 4.24% increase over the quarter. The portfolio was impacted by a lack of investments in cyclicals (commodities, automotive) and financials. In terms of individual holdings, a few stocks weighed on the portfolio: Team Viewer suffered a sharp decline due to the unexpected announcement of two major sponsorship deals that led the company to cut its short-term margin expectations. Adidas suffered from the spat between Western countries and China over Chinese cotton from the Xianjiang region, and the situation of the Uighur minority: the sanctions imposed by Western countries on China could result in a Chinese boycott of Western companies. Kerry was weak following cautious strategic targets for 2021. On the other hand, the portfolio was positively impacted by the following. Assa Abloy, which benefited from an improved business outlook and margin assurance for 2021. Sika, which was able to maintain high levels of activity and profitability. The group is gaining market share through strong customer relationships and its high-quality product portfolio. LVMH, which saw strong growth in all its businesses. During the quarter, the Swedish company Sweco was added to the portfolio. It is the leading engineering consultancy in Europe, active in the fields of engineering, environmental technology and architecture. Three main trends are driving its growth: growing urbanisation, digitalisation which is helping to make cities smarter, and climate change with the need for alternative energy and recycling.
