PSG Stable comment - Mar 19

2019/05/24 00:00:00
Current context Global equity markets recovered sharply in the first quarter of 2019. The MSCI World Index delivered a total return of 12.6% and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index returned 9.9%. The JSE’s recovery was more lacklustre: the FTSE/JSE All Share Index gained 8.0% and was dominated by rand hedges, especially resources and Naspers. Domestic counters were material underperformers. The FTSE/JSE Small Cap Index lost 3.4% and financials declined over the quarter.
Local fixed income assets experienced some tailwinds from Moody’s decision to keep South Africa’s credit rating unchanged. This has resulted in the sovereign yields reducing slightly, as local and foreign investors continue to see value in South African government bonds. Anchored inflation - well within the South African Reserve Bank’s (SARB’s) 3% to 6% target band - has further supported yields, as the SARB has taken a more neutral stance on interest rates and maintained the existing repurchase rate of 6.75%.
Our perspective As we have noted for some time, there is pervasive fear in certain parts of investment markets. This is in complete contrast to other areas that are well owned and in which investors are inclined to be complacent. Markets therefore continue to be characterised by wide valuation divergences. We are finding far more opportunities in those parts where investors are fearful, especially in the SA Inc. part of the domestic market, which has endured tough economic conditions and aggressive selling by foreigners in recent years. In fact, our bottom-up analysis is indicating valuations usually seen in deep bear markets. For longer-term investors who can ride out the storm, the return profile from carefully selected securities at such low valuation levels is promising.
Equally as encouraging is the fact that the opportunities we’re finding extend across almost all asset classes - a rare position to be in. We believe that this has allowed us to build diversified portfolios with favourable odds of achieving their mandates under a range of possible outcomes. We’re excited both by the opportunity set, and by the balanced nature of our funds’ investments.
Portfolio positioning Equity exposure increased from 37.2% to 39.1% over the quarter, as the fund took advantage of the opportunities presented to buy shares in above-average quality global companies at attractive margins of safety. Total equity exposure comprises an allocation of 22.6% to domestic equity and 16.5% to foreign equity.
The fund’s holdings in domestic cash and negotiable certificates of deposit (NCDs) decreased by 0.7% over the quarter, from 17.1% to 16.4%. The fund also reduced corporate bond exposures in segments where margin of safety has narrowed. As a result, the fund’s allocation to domestic bonds reduced by 1.9% to 41.8%. Its foreign cash holding is slightly higher compared to the previous quarter end, at 0.8%. Foreign property exposure increased by 0.3% to 1.9% during the early stages of the quarter, as opportunities were presented by market weakness.
  • Fund focus and objective  
The PSG Stable Fund will seek to generate a performance return of CPI + 3% over a rolling three year period, while aiming to achieve capital appreciation with low volatility and a low correlation to equity markets through all market cycles. In order to achieve this investment objective the securities normally to be included in the portfolio will primarily consist of a mix of debt securities, money market instruments, bonds, inflation-linked securities, listed equities, listed property, preference shares, and other high yielding securities. The fund managers have applied a constraint on the mandate of this fund to ensure this fund complies with Regulation 28.
