Investment objective and policy

The Euro fund invests principally (1) in bonds denominated in Euro with a residual term of no more than 12 months, and (2) in floating-rate securities. It also includes money market instruments issued by first-rate issuers, and liquidities.

Management report - 2nd Quarter 2017

The central banks continue to dictate the pace. But now, the question is not what more they could they do but at what pace they will withdraw liquidity. The minutes of the latest ECB meeting and the recent pronouncements by some members confirm the Bank's intention to start withdrawing some of its support measures. It should be noted, however, that attention is focused exclusively on the ECB's forthcoming monetary tightening rather than on the long road ahead to achieve its inflation targets... Outlook On 7 September, the ECB's Governing Council is expected to announce a reduction in the pace of its monthly asset purchases from EUR 60 to 40 billion, starting in January 2018. The Council is also expected to continue its reinvestment policy. A further EUR 20 billion reduction is likely to be decided on in March. We do not expect interest rates to be increased before Q1 2019. The fund continues to invest mainly in systemically important investment-grade floating- and fixed-rate bonds with residual maturity of less than 12 months, while at the same time retaining a sizable cash reserve.
