Manager comment
Manager comment
The fund recorded a positive performance of +1.86% in July.
The performance was mainly driven by the marked lowering of European and American rates and a tightening of Investment Grade and High Yield Spreads.
We maintain a diversified allocation across three geographic areas, Europe, the U.S. and Emerging Countries.
Operationally, we have continued to identify investment opportunities in the secondary market especially in Europe and the US. We note significantly lower volumes in the primary market than in 2020 and 2021, as the current macroeconomic environment would allow companies to renegotiate debt on less favorable terms. The portfolio's hedged yield is now about 5.5 percent with Duration 4.3 years and Average Rating BB.
We maintain full hedging against all currencies.
