Manager comment
In March, Pharus Liquidity recorded a performance of 0.16%. On the interest rate front, we observed discordant movements on the US curve compared to the EUR curve. The US curve experienced a slight increase, while the German curve decreased. This trend is attributed to the resilience of the US economy compared to a Eurozone on the brink of recession. Shorter parts of the curves saw a median movement of +3 bps on the US curve and -8.5 bps on the German curve. We remain convinced that the sector represents a very interesting investment opportunity, considering both the current interest rate environment and its defensive nature. Operationally, we continue to seek opportunities mainly in the longer part of our investable universe, with maturities starting in 2027, acquiring new names or increasing those already in the portfolio. The portfolio currently has a Duration of 1.52 and a covered yield in euros of 4.4% with a weighted average rating of BB. We will continue to hedge against all foreign currencies.
