Strategy

Investment objective and policy

This fund invests mainly in UCITS and other UCIs with no geographical, sector or currency restriction. The remaining assets may be invested in cash or any other type of transferable security that is listed or traded on regulated markets. The equity weighting can vary between 50% and 100% of net assets. The emphasis is on international diversification of investments and flexibility in terms of themes and sectors that may potentially be present within the fund.

Management report - 1st Quarter 2021

BL Fund Selection 50-100 gained 4.3% in the first quarter, slightly below the average performance for its asset class (5.0%). The overall positioning reflected in the significant overweighting of equities and geographic allocation significantly boosted the fund. Only funds with a strong value bias managed to outperform their benchmark. JP Morgan Strategic Value (+15.3%) did better than the Euro Stoxx 50 (+10.7%). ABN AMRO Pzena US Equities (+22.2%) beat the S&P 500 (10.4%). Janus Henderson Japanese Smaller Companies gained 11.0% while the Topix rose 5.8%. Kempen Global Small Cap (+23.3%) was way ahead of the MSCI AC World (+8.4%). But many of the other funds failed to match the index performance. Gold positions were in negative territory. We are in a phase where confidence in a clear improvement in economic growth is sweeping the whole market along, especially those stocks that have suffered heavily from the lockdown measures. Since November, the value segment of the European, US and Global portfolios has been significantly increased. We believe it is now sufficiently represented. In alternative strategy funds, the Marshall Wace TOPS UCITS long/short fund has performed very well since the beginning of the year (+6.6%) whereas the Lazard European Alternative fund (-0.5% since the beginning of the year) has yet to get going as its short side has been detrimental. In bonds, Gavekal China Fixed Income (+3.3%) and Principal Finisterre Unconstrained Emerging Markets (+2.2%) were solid. The current rather high level of equity exposure compared to the fund’s historical weighting is likely to be maintained in the short term. The prevailing optimism about the economic recovery is spreading: first China, now the US, Europe next. That said, the markets have already risen significantly, and a lot of catching up has already taken place. It will be important to remain attentive to signals suggesting any return to volatility.
