Monthly Fund Manager's Commentary
There was no base rate alteration in April but the ECB prepared a rate cut by explicitly pointing out the weakness of the European economy. The president of the Bundesbank, Weidmann, considered a base rate cut and does not give an all clear signal viewing the debt crisis. In addition he demands, the possibility of European banks to go bankruptcy without threatening the financial system. In a confidential statement for the Federal Constitutional Court, the Bundesbank refused the purchase of all government bonds. Some US FED members are able to imagine the end of the monetary easing in 2013. But the most important decision makers Bernanke and Yellen represent the opposite opinion, what will complicate a fast change in direction. Meanwhile 12 Federal states of the US would like to introduce gold and silver coins as means of payment in order to emphasize their dissatisfaction with the policy of the FED. Japan on the other side announced to extend the bond purchasing program even to longer maturities. Currently Japan enhanced its investments in Euro government bonds. Within the euro zone as a whole the deficit reduction is in progress. The rate of new indebtedness 2012 was only 3.7 per cent. Anyway, in France and in Spain this rate is higher than expected (4.8 % respc. 10.6%), which is considerably higher than the targeted 3 per cent. Anyway, this was no harm for bonds. During the month the yield in France dipped more than 30 bp to 1.71 % and in Spain from 5 % to more than 4%. Germany is still able to use favorable financial sources and launched a 31-year bond with a yield of only 2.6 per cent. The yield of the 10- year Bundesanleihe was by month end 1.22 per cent. Also Italy was able thanks to the finally formed government to raise money under 4 per cent. The fund management took place in the new emissions of BMW, EP Energy, Gazprom, Lukoil, RZD Capital, Schaeffler, Sinopec and the VW Bank. The credit insurer Euler Hermes expects a growth in insolvencies in the Eurozone for 2013 of 21 percent. The focus of the fund management remains on short durations, good credit standings and a high proportion of corporate bonds.
