    Management commentary

    May 2024

    The MACH strategy funds were buoyed by bullish trends in the equity and sovereign bond markets in the first half of May 2024, then reduced their risk and went short in the second half of the month to mitigate or profit from the market downturn.

    Following on from the end of April, the MACH strategy began May with short positions in equities and sovereign bonds. It quickly returned to long equities and bonds, while maintaining a measured exposure during the first week of May. The beginning of the month is influenced by uncertainties linked to the Fed’s interest rate decision. On May 3, the US employment report announced lower-than-expected job creation, which was viewed positively by the markets, as it suggested a slowdown in the labor market conducive to the Fed’s accommodative monetary policy. On May 9, the markets reacted positively to the Bank of England’s (BoE) announcements, expressing optimism that inflation was set to fall, and to the robustness of the global economy, particularly in China. The period was thus marked by a steady rise in equities, and a slight increase in bond indices.

    From May 10 to 21, the strategy continued to increase its exposure to equities. Exposure to sovereign bonds is gradually declining. This period, during which equity markets continue to rise and sovereign bonds stagnate, is marked by several macroeconomic events and monetary policy decisions. On May 17, for example, the markets came to a halt after their record highs, following a series of warnings from Fed officials and disappointing economic indicators in China that clouded the outlook. Uncertainty over interest rates weighed on the markets.

    From May 22 to 28, the strategy significantly reduced its exposure to sovereign bonds, on which it went short, reaching a duration of -5.6 on May 24 on Ouessant. The week was marked by a significant correction in equity indices and a fall in sovereign bonds. Ahead of the ECB meeting scheduled for June 6, the market awaits with interest the first estimate of May consumer prices in the eurozone and the April PCE price index in the United States, two crucial statistics published on May 31.

    On May 29, equity markets retreated significantly, penalized by a rise in bond yields – as investors feared that interest rates would remain high for longer than expected. In response to this stress, the strategy adjusts its exposures: it takes a significant short position in equities and increases its short exposure to sovereign bonds, before reducing its risk the very next day. CME Group’s FedWatch gauge indicated on the 30th that it was not impossible that the Fed would wait until after the US presidential election in November to change its monetary policy. In addition, even if the European Central Bank (ECB) seems ready to start easing its key rates, it could be cautious not to diverge too much from the Fed’s policy. The MACH strategy’s defensive stance will be maintained until May 31, when exposure to equities and sovereign bonds will return to slightly long.

    The strategy posted a monthly net performance of +1,03 %* for Ouessant (A share) and +3,23 %* for Mach 3 (A share).

    Below is a breakdown of Ouessant’s daily returns and cumulative returns contribution in May 2024** :

    *Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The funds carry a risk of capital loss.

    **These data refer to past periods and are not necessarily representative of future changes in the allocation of risk. The risk allocation is broadly similar for the Ouessant and Mach 3 funds. Naturally, there may be a slight difference linked to different operational factors.

    Main risks

    Risk of capital loss

    Any investment in equities presents a risk of capital loss. The investors may not regain their initial investment value. The Common Fund offers neither guarantee nor protection of the initial capital.

    Model Risk

    The management process is based on the development of a mathematical quantitative management model to identify signals based on past statistical results. There is a risk that this model should not be efficient, as there is no guarantee that past market situations will recur in the future.

    Equity risk

    Equity risk corresponds to a decline in equity markets. The funds being exposed to equities, the net asset value may fall significantly.

    Interest rate risk

    Interest rate risk corresponds to the risk associated with a rise in bond market rates, which causes a decrease in bond prices and, consequently, a fall in the net asset value of the funds, when exposed to this risk.

    Credit risk

    It represents the possible risk of a downgrade of the issuer’s signature and the risk that the issuer may not be able to meet its repayments, which will lead to a reduction in the net asset value of the funds.

    Risk associated with commodities

    The commodities components may have a significantly different evolution from the traditional securities markets (equities, bonds). The climatic and geopolitical factors may also alter the offer and demand levels of the considered underlying, in other words modify the expected rarity of this latter on the market. However the components belonging to the same commodities market among the three main represented, i.e. energy, metals or agricultural products, may have more strongly correlated evolutions with each other. An unfavourable evolution of these markets may make the fund Net Asset Value decrease.

    Currency Risk

    The portfolio may be invested in securities not denominated in euro. The deterioration in the exchange rate may result in a decrease in the net asset value. The investor is therefore exposed to a foreign exchange risk which can however be partially or totally hedged. Currency risk is included in our models.

    Emerging market risk

    The operating and supervision conditions of the emerging markets may deviate from standard prevailing on the international places; the information on some equities may be uncomplete and their liquidity more reduced. The evolution of these securities price may consequently vary very strongly and entail a decrease of the ETFs value invested on these markets and consequently the Net Asset Value of the Fund.
