Manager comment
Manager comment
During the month of February, Pharus Liquidity posted a slightly negative performance of -0.05%. On the interest rate front, we saw a rise on both the US and European curves, driven by higher-than-expected inflation data and fears that central banks will press ahead with rate hikes, moving the terminal rate to the 5% area for the Fed and around 4% for the ECB.
On the credit front, we saw spreads hold up well in both the Investment Grade and High Yield worlds. We did not make any particular interventions during the month, limiting ourselves to investing the cash obtained from some redemptions on new High Yield opportunities of quality and maturity to 2025. We maintain our focus on Europe and the US, while at a sector level we believe that Financials and Industrials are the most attractive sectors to date.
The portfolio has a duration of 1.3 and a euro hedged yield of 5.5 per cent with a BB+ weighted average rating. We will continue to maintain currency hedging against all foreign currencies.
