Carmignac Patrimoine: 2022 end of summer update

YTD Performance Review

Escalating concerns that central banks' efforts to tackle inflation by hiking rates will trigger a global recession has been the main topic for markets over the last months and this should remain relevant for several months.

Therefore, the global portfolio construction has remained highly cautious since the beginning of the year

  • Average equity exposure: 16%
  • Average modified duration: 1.6
  • Average cash exposure 24%.

Over the summer, this under-exposure to risky assets did not allow us to benefit from the rebound in equity/credit market. This market rebound led by a reversal in market participants’ sentiment is more likely to be a bear market rally rather than a change of environment.

Indeed, in late August, in response, central bankers reminded the markets that they would not be changing the course of monetary tightening any time soon.

More broadly, since the beginning of the year, Carmignac Patrimoine A EUR Acc lost -11.48% underperforming the -5.18% drop in its reference indicator¹. The negative absolute and relative performance has been fuelled by:

Notable portfolio moves

Over the last months, the objective has been to continue derisking the portfolio. Either by increasing the hedges or by buying resilient companies able to survive in a stagflation environment.

  • NEW POSITIONS/ REINFORCEMENT

    • Defensive companies to solidify the portfolio construction – Nestlé, Catalent
    • Cloud/Software for their attractive and recurring revenue streams profile & lower valuations – Oracle

    • Credit protection

    • USD exposure as growth momentum is in favor of the US & term of trades are in favour of the euro
  • POSITIONS SOLD/ REDUCED

    • Cyclical names as recession risk is rising (Volkswagen)
    • Banks as rising rates will turn from a tailwind to banks to a headwind as retail and wholesale losses begin to pick-up (Lloyd, BNP Paribas)
    • EM debt due to recession risk and tightening monetary policy (Brazil)
    • Businesses sensitive to advertising (Google/Meta)

Outlook

Implementation of our macro-economic scenario within our portfolio

In line with our house view, the portfolio is built to face a global stagflation scenario. While putting a strong emphasis on risk management, this environment should offer several investment opportunities for active management that could support the absolute performance.

Here are the main investment themes at play in the portfolio currently:

  • US exceptionalism

    Within this stagflation environment, given its relative immunity from the global energy crisis and a solid job market, the US consumer should support US growth.

    • Selection of consumer names that should benefit from a resilient US consumption outlook with names like Costco, O’Reilly Automotive, Amazon, Home Depot, Constellation Brands

    • Neutral/long position on US rates as a front loading by the Federal Reserve increases yields on shorter maturity, it should also eventually weigh those of longer maturities, reflecting lower growth

    • Long Dollar position

  • Rising concerns on the European economy (economic and political)

    While the economy is already showing some signs of weakness, inflationary pressures keep building up letting no choice to the ECB to further tighten its monetary policy. In addition, the continent is under threat of energy restrictions.

    • Short position on the Euro Stoxx 50

    • Hedges on European credit index

    • Neutral/short bias on European sovereign rates (Underweight positioning on European periphery)

    • Carry of the European credit portfolio (subordinated financial debt, structured credit, specific names’ reconstituted carry allows for digesting volatility)

  • Imbalanced supply/demand equilibrium in the energy sector
    • Long credit position in the energy sector

    • Exposure to transitioning traditional energy companies (Total, Schlumberger)

    • Investment in renewable energy stocks (Orsted)

    • Selection of commodities exporters (Mexico)

  • Highly volatile markets within a downward trend for risky assets
    • Active management of equity and modified duration to gain exposure quickly in case of bear market rally

    • Gold to manage geopolitical and economic risks

    • Cash that we stand ready to deploy as markets continue to dislocate

What to expect in terms of performance over the next months?

Despite putting a strong emphasis on risk management, we have several performance drivers for the following months:

  • Most of the underperformance YTD has been driven by a temporary under-performance of some of our long-term convictions. Therefore, discrepancies between fundamentals and valuations offer room for a catch-up in some of convictions i.e. energy and financial credit, stocks in consumer and tech sectors.

  • Net long equity exposure (20%) driven by health care, energy, consumption exposure

  • High carry of the credit portfolio (YTM 4%)

  • Long dollar position (directional and carry) (61%)

  • Our cash will be deployed to rebuild some long-term return potential in both equity and fixed income markets as soon as market conditions improve (23%)
