We are positive about the near-term growth outlook and expect disinflation to remain stalled as economic growth is likely to accelerate. In our view, disinflation could resume later this year, and market expectations for interest rate cuts in 2024 are slightly elevated. Corporate bonds should stay supported given near-term demand for higher yields despite uncompelling spread levels.

Fund Summary
In constructing the portfolio, we seek to balance high-conviction positions with sensitivity to sovereign and liquidity risk. A proprietary, independent credit rating is assigned to all issuers and securities. We carry out a deep analysis of each issuer’s market share, management team quality, and financial strength. The promotion of environmental and/or social characteristics is achieved through the fund's commitment to maintain at least 10% of the value of its portfolio invested in Sustainable Investments, as defined by the SFDR. Additionally, we apply a proprietary responsible screen (exclusion list). The manager is not constrained by the fund’s benchmark, which is used for performance comparison purposes only.

31-May-2024 - Steve Boothe, Portfolio Manager,
Global investment-grade corporate bonds saw a positive total return in May as measured by the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Corporate Total Return Index. Sovereign and corporate yields fell as US inflation appeared softer, the Federal Reserve (Fed) pushed back against interest rate hikes, and markets priced in a European Central Bank rate cut. Credit spreads tightened modestly, supported by investors’ strong risk appetites and generating robust demand. Within the portfolio, security selection was the main contributor to relative returns, led by our choices within the banking and consumer non-cyclical sectors. Asset allocation also added value, thanks to our exposures to securitised credit, out-of-benchmark government agency and government-related bonds, and our underweight allocation to the capital goods sector. Interest rate management had a neutral effect on performance over the period.
31-Dec-2023 - Steve Boothe, Portfolio Manager,
We maintain a preference for developed markets over emerging markets given relatively favourable valuations. Within developed markets, we are overweight to euro investment-grade credit, notably through banks, given compelling valuations. In the US, we have moved toward neutral on banks, and are finding opportunities in less cyclical non-financials. Fundamentals are likely to deteriorate across developed markets, albeit from a strong level. We maintain selective exposure to differentiated sources of potential outperformance and diversification, including emerging market sovereigns.

Source for performance: T. Rowe Price. Fund performance is calculated using the official NAV with dividends reinvested, if any. The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may get back less than the amount invested. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the fund and the subscription currency, if different. Sales charges (up to a maximum of 5% for the A Class), taxes and other locally applied costs have not been deducted and if applicable, they will reduce the performance figures.
