Market environment

Economic activity remains weak in Europe. Eurozone manufacturing and services PMIs drifted further apart in March, with the former particularly low. UK data was more positive: GDP improved a little in January, and the composite PMI stayed in expansionary territory throughout the first quarter. European inflation rates dropped further despite persistent tensions on the labour market. US data continues to reflect a degree of economic resilience, with inflation figures still high. In the light of this, the Fed and the ECB are sticking to their plan and will probably start cutting interest rates this summer. This backdrop of robust growth, persistent inflation and more accommodative central banks is keeping the risky asset rally alive. The Stoxx 600 Europe performed well, beating its US equivalent. The rally spread to more corners of the market at the end of the month when cyclical sectors rebounded as commodity prices climbed. Credit also continued to perform well. European yields eased in March, while the growth differential between the United States and the Eurozone persists.

Performance commentary

The Fund was up in March, in line with its reference indicator. Sector rotation between European equities weighed on the relative performance of our long-term convictions. Quality and growth stocks such as Alcon and Dassault Systèmes underperformed. However, as we mentioned last month, we have added futures on more cyclical sector indices, which served their purpose in March. Exposure to gold was also profitable, as bullion prices hit new highs. On fixed income markets, credit was the main source of performance – financials in particular. Our JPY/EUR position was the biggest drag, despite the Bank of Japan’s decision to terminate its negative interest rate policy.

Outlook strategy

European inflation continues to fall, while growth – though weak – seems to be improving. We are therefore expecting the ECB to act in June and lower its interest rates for the first time since 2020. This should benefit risky assets. We have nonetheless diversified our equity investments, increasing exposure to more cyclical sectors such as metals and automotive. We also strengthened our position on gold and copper during the month. We feel confident about commodities, which should benefit from the manufacturing industry’s gradual rebound. The equity markets’ strong rally over recent months could lead to volatility over the coming weeks. To overcome this, we are looking at cheap ways of protecting the portfolio: buying volatility options and credit default swaps. At a sovereign debt level, our exposure to interest rate movements remains limited as, despite signs of central banks pivoting, solid inflation and economic data call for caution, especially at the long end of the yield curve.
