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 performance of the European credit market was contrasted in March. Risk premiums continued to tighten in the investment grade segment, with -9bp. All sectors benefited from this momentum, primarily healthcare and real estate (-10bp each) and, to a slightly lesser extent, chemicals (-8bp). The trend was similar for financials, with a sharper compression for subordinated spreads (-12bp) than for senior bonds (-18bp). Conversely, the high yield segment widened by 7bp in March, negatively impacted by particular events, including at Altice and Ardagh. The best-rated debts thus outperformed speculative bonds in March, up 1.21% vs. +0.44%. Momentum was strong in the corporate primary market in March, with €30bn in IG issues and €6bn in HY.
Against this backdrop, the portfolio posted a positive performance, driven by the dip in sovereign yields and a further compression in risk premiums. We are keeping the fund’s sensitivity below that of the index as the market expects a significant drop in rates between now and the end of 2026. Lastly, in view of recent events concerning several high-yield issuers and the low level of risk premiums, we continued to favour the best-rated issuers. For example, we added Australia Pacific Airports and Transurban to the portfolio, while we sold Ceconomy, which has an insufficient return given its credit risk.
