Investment objective

The management objective of R-co 4Change Convertibles Europe is to outperform the ECI Europe by having at least 60% of its assets invested in and/or exposed to, on a continuous basis, convertible bonds or bonds exchangeable for an underlying listed on the market of a European country. The FCP is a conviction fund with a discretionary management style based on the manager’s assessment of changes in the various markets, combined with a socially responsible investment approach.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Markets could develop very differently in the future. It can help you to assess how the fund has been managed in the past. Performance is shown after deduction of ongoing charges. Any entry and exit charges are excluded from the calculation.
* Since 30/03/2021, the security selection process has followed formalised internal portfolio management rules and incorporated ESG analysis of companies. Performances prior to this date were therefore achieved in conditions that no longer apply.

Yields dipped slightly this month amid a volatile environment, with investors still unsure about upcoming central bank decisions. Mixed employment data in the US initially led to a drop in yields before higher-than-expected inflation dampened these expectations. Uncertainty over the Fed’s two major objectives did not prevent its members from reiterating their desire to reduce the key rate this year. The market is currently expecting fewer than three Fed cuts in 2024 and continues to expect three or four in the eurozone. The 10-year US and German yields dropped by 6bp and 15bp to 4.20% and 2.30%, respectively. Against this backdrop, Italy’s spread continued to tighten, reaching 138bp (-5bp) on the 10-year.
The market pick-up initiated in late October continued in March across all geographical regions. Barring China, which gained 1.7% in March (MSCI China in euros) but only 0.35% since the beginning of the year, almost all the main equity indices posted double-digit performances in the first quarter. The MSCI World continues to be bolstered by resilient US growth and expectations of future rate cuts, having gained 11.7% since the end of 2023 euros and dividends reinvested. The S&P gained 13.3%, driven by technology stocks, while the TOPIX rose 11.8% and the Eurostoxx 10%.
European convertible bonds have continued to perform well since the beginning of the year, driven by the rise in equity markets. Valuations continue to rise in Europe. However, the discount in the European convertible bond universe is far from over. The primary market in Europe remains sluggish. There were no new issues in February and it was not until the end of March that Citigroup issued a €380m synthetic convertible bond in LVMH shares. This was the sole issue in Europe, even though market conditions appear to be conducive to new issues and the primary market in the US and Asia is buoyant. As a result, total new issuance in the first quarter totalled €1.5bn (four new issues), compared with an average of €5.2bn over the last three years. Year-to-date redemptions amounted to €5.4bn.
The portfolio was adversely affected mainly by the absence of Delivery Hero and Nordex and the underweight on Rag/Evonik and Balder, while the overweight on BNP, Amadeus and Prysmian proved beneficial.
