Management report - 4th Quarter 2020

The health situation was still difficult at the end of the year, forcing many countries to partially shut down their economies again. The announcement of very promising results from Pfizer (followed by Moderna) on a Covid-19 vaccine with efficacy rates of over 90% spurred the markets in the fourth quarter. Although the vaccines will not be available on a large scale before the Spring, they are already allowing the markets to see a clearer way out of the health crisis at last and envisage a gradual return to normal in the second half of 2021. In the last few months, the markets were also buoyed by the results of the US presidential election. Joe Biden's victory offers the prospect of the trade war easing, with China and with other partners around the world. After months of bitter discussions, an agreement was finally reached between the United Kingdom and the European Union in the closing days of 2020. This tide of optimism led to strong gains on the equity markets. The MSCI World index added 9.4% (in EUR), driven by emerging markets (+14.7% in EUR) and European markets (+10.9%), which have a greater proportion of cyclical stocks, the quarter's main beneficiaries. The US markets gained 7.5% (in EUR). BL Fund Selection Equities benefited from this favourable environment for risky assets to grow by 8.7%. It underperformed the average of its peers: with its bias towards the quality growth style, the fund suffered from the poor relative performance of the underlying funds in an environment that was more favourable to cyclical stocks and value management. Most of the equity funds in the portfolio underperformed their respective indexes. In addition, the gold-mining funds posted negative performance overall for the quarter as the price of gold consolidated after a good start to the year. Notable in terms of movements was the exit of G Fund Avenir Europe following the announcement of the fund manager’s departure. It was replaced by a fund that is similar in terms of management style, Berenberg European Focus.
