Management report - 1st Quarter 2021

Emerging market debt in dollars corrected by 2.52% in dollars in the first quarter of 2021 according to the BLI Sovereign Emerging Market Dollar index. As a symbol of economic recovery, the start of the vaccination campaigns is leading to a surge of enthusiasm, which is raising US inflation expectations and pushing up US nominal yields with a vengeance. Already, between the beginning of 2021 and the end of February 2021, the 10-year US Treasury yield increased by 50 basis points. While the rise in the consumer price index fuelled by the rally in commodities suggests a recovery in price levels around the world, the Federal Open Market Committee's message is clear: no monetary tightening in 2021. On the sovereign bond markets in dollar, high yield issuers, particularly African issuers, were initially relatively spared the correction caused by the rise in long-dated yields but ended up following the downward movement. The Federal Open Market Committee's control of short-term dollar yields limits the loss on short maturities while issues with a maturity longer than 8 years are at a significant discount. Concerns over the safety of the AstraZeneca vaccine and the proliferation of new variants of the cov_sars_2 virus have exposed economies to a new wave of infection. This is why, at the end of the quarter, the issues described above that were oversold during the quarter stabilised (long-dated issues from countries with a solid (investment grade) credit rating). The US 10-year risk-free rate closed the quarter at 1.74%, 83 basis points higher than at the end of the previous quarter. BL Bond Emerging Markets Dollar gave up 2.94% in the first quarter. At 31 March 2021, the portfolio's average yield was 1.98% with a modified duration of 4.83.
