Strategy

Investment objective and policy

The fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in emerging market equities and bonds.The equity allocation can vary between 60% and 100%. The bond allocation results from the lack of opportunities on the equity side. The structure of this fund is not linked to a benchmark index, but derives from the addition of individual investment opportunities. The equity investments are based on the principles of "business-like investing". This approach implies that the fund manager considers every investment like a stake in a business with a long-term investment horizon. This means that he is on the look-out for quality companies with a tangible competitive advantage that results in high levels of profitability and strong potential for free cash flow generation. Great importance is also attached to company valuation. The fund only invests in a company when its share price provides a safety margin compared to its intrinsic value. This sub-fund is also available denominated in USD with the identical investment policy (LU0887931029).

Management report - 1st Quarter 2021

The emerging markets' equity index, the MSCI Emerging Markets NR, was up by 6.4% (in EUR) during the first quarter of 2021. The fund (retail class B) was up by 4.5% (in EUR) over the same period. In emerging markets, the sectors that performed best were more cyclical sectors like materials and real estate. Healthcare, consumer cyclicals and staples performed worst. Since mid-February, large stocks performed worst whereas smaller capitalizations performed much better. There has been a marked rotation from growth stocks into so-called "value" stocks. During the quarter, the fund manager initiated on two new companies: ACE Hardware, the biggest organized home improvement retailer in Indonesia operating more than 200 stores and offering over 60.000 items. ACE is the largest player in that segment with close to 20% market share. There are still a lot of opportunities for ACE to grow, as the home improvement market is still very fragmented with mom & pop stores accounting for over 70%. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is a leading global IT services provider, ranging from software implementation to digital transformation consulting to servicing entire business operations teams. Based in Mumbai, TCS is the largest Indian IT company in terms of revenues and counts over 450.000 employees. The company generates about half of its revenues from the US and 30% from Europe (incl. UK). The company is well positioned to capture the growing demand for "digital" transformation like cloud migration, artificial intelligence implementation, automation, blockchain technologies, cyber security or virtual reality. Social mobility requirements will only accelerate that transformation. In January, the fund manager sold two beverage companies for valuation reasons: the Chinese brewery Tsingtao and the Turkish beverage company Anadolu Efes. The equity allocation moved from 91% at the beginning of the quarter to 88% by the end of March.
