Why is this Fund in this category?
Fund manager comment : 31/12/19
European equity markets ended the year on a fresh increase on the back of a decline in political and geopolitical uncertainty. A so-called “phase 1” deal was concluded between the US and China (albeit still not signed) while the general elections in the UK led to a wide majority for the Conservative party, thereby triggering the transition phase for Brexit that should last until end-2020. Economic surveys validated the stabilisation in activity in the main economies. The European property stocks index ended 3% higher, making the most of the clear 5% rebound in highly discounted UK property stocks (EPRA Europe, +3%, EPRA Euro +0.8%). Newsflow was rich in the German housing sector. Deutsche Wohnen sold a portfolio of social housing located in Berlin to the municipal housing company for more than EUR350m, representing a yield of close to 3%. This should have a positive impact on earnings. The disposal represented a 30% premium to the latest valuation when the share was trading on a discount of 20% and the company announced a share buyback programme. At the same time, the quality of the portfolio was improved by the streamlining of non-strategic holdings. ADLER Real Estate AG and ADO Properties signed a merger agreement through a share swap offer based on the latest valuations, in a move that will create the third largest residential property group in Germany. The operation is fairly complex, especially since ADO Properties is also aiming to acquire Consus, the main German residential property developer specialised in rental products in nine leading cities. The Adler and Consus shares jumped 10% and 25% approximately following the announcement whereas ADO Properties was down by around 15%. The fund outperformed its benchmark index. The positive contributors stemmed primarily from overweightings in Icade (offices in the Paris region), Grainger (UK housing) and Safestore (storage in the UK and Paris) and underweightings in Befimmo (Beglian offices) and Merlin Properties (diversified in Iberia). Negative contributors were focused on the overweighting in ADO Properties (housing in Berlin) and the underweighting in British Land (offices/retail in the UK). In terms of activity in the fund, we made a few minor adjustments. We switched out of some exposure to German housing (Ado Properties) and UK student residences (Unite), and into more cyclical and discounted UK stocks such as British Land and Great Portland.

SRRI stands for Synthetic Risk & Reward Information: From 1 lower risk to 7 higher risk. Lower risk has potentially lower reward and higher risk has potentially higher reward. The risk category is calculated using historical performance data and may not be a reliable indicator of the Sub-Fund's future risk profile. The risk category shown is not guaranteed and may shift over time. The lowest category does not mean risk free.
