Management report - 1st Quarter 2021

During the first quarter of 2021, bond yields rose across the board and the equity market rally was driven by the strong performance of value companies. The two main drivers of this performance were the Democrats' victory in Georgia at the start of the year, paving the way for massive new fiscal stimulus measures in the US, and the successful roll-out of vaccines in the US and the UK. One year since the equity markets bottomed out, the S&P 500 has risen 78%, surpassing its pre-crisis highs by 17%, and is up 5.7% year-to-date. The 10-year US Treasury yield is now 1.75%, up from a low of 0.5% in August 2020 and 0.9% at the start of the year. The net asset value of BL Equities America (retail accumulation share net of fees in USD) gained 1.54% in USD in the first quarter. The main contributors to performance over the period were home improvement company Lowe's, technology companies Alphabet and Microsoft, pharmaceutical group Abbott Laboratories, logistics company Fedex and financial technology company Fiserv. Among the main detractors from performance were data analysis and risk assessment company Verisk Analytics, tech giant Apple, sports equipment manufacturer Nike, leading online retailer Amazon.com and payment company Visa. New additions to the portfolio during the quarter were hand and power tool and electronic security solution producer Stanley Black&Decker, online retailer eBay, and China's largest restaurant chain Yum China. The entire position in Coca-Cola was sold.
