Management report - 4th Quarter 2020

In the fourth quarter of 2020, government bonds issued by emerging market countries in euros gained nearly 4.48%, according to the universe used at BLI for the emerging sovereign debt market in euros (SEME)*. The yield spread narrowed by nearly 64 basis points to 212 basis points at the end of the quarter. After a relatively quiet month in October, the sudden appreciation at the beginning of November was largely attributable to Joe Biden's victory in the US election, despite the complex geopolitical climate. The announcement of a vaccine that is over 90% effective against the sars-cov-2 virus by the pharmaceutical giants had only a moderate impact on the asset class. The advent of a third wave of Covid-19 in some parts of the world and disappointing third quarter production data slowed the growth that had been underway in the asset class at the beginning of the month. Nevertheless, the start of the Covid-19 vaccination, heralding some form of economic recovery to come, seems to have been welcomed by the riskier markets. The African economies tend to do well when Asia Pacific underperforms. The Chinese economy is expected to rebound in the first quarter of 2021. With China accounting for the overwhelming proportion of Asian (EM) data, we can expect a clear improvement in the next quarter. Over the quarter, no fundamental change was made to the composition of BL EM Euro. Sovereign and corporate allocations continue to be the biggest segments in the portfolio, accounting for 55% and 32% respectively. At 31 December 2020, the average yield of the portfolio was 0.57% with a modified duration of 5.26. *(SEME: Sovereign Emerging Markets Euro)
