JOHCM Global Income Builder Fund (JOBIX)

Fund Description

The JOHCM Global Income Builder Fund is managed by JOHCM’s New York-based Multi-Asset Value team, which includes Senior Fund Managers Giorgio Caputo, Adam Gittes and Robert Hordon and Fund Manager Remy Gicquel.

Investment Strategy

Investment approach

The JOHCM team employs a differentiated bottom-up approach to investing across asset classes that is rooted in global value investing and which seeks to balance current income with the preservation and growth of capital in real (inflation-adjusted) terms over time. They seek to identify income-generative investments where they believe a margin of safety exists between their sense of the security or underlying business’s intrinsic value and the valuation reflected by the security’s market price. In normal market environments, the income level is expected to range between 3.5% and 4.5% of AUM after expenses. However, the team prioritizes the preservation of capital ahead of income generation, thus actual income distribution may fall outside these ranges. 

The team invests across global equity and debt capital market and seeks to manage relatively diversified portfolios, typically investing in the securities of 80-100 debt or equity issuers.  The equity exposure can range from 30% to 70% of the fund, but will generally be at least 40% of assets under management.  

Capacity for the Global Income Builder strategy has been set at $10 billion, at which point JOHCM will take steps to limit additional inflows in order to protect the interests of existing investors.

Investment objective

The investment objective of the JOHCM Global Income Builder Fund is to seek a level of current income that is consistent with the preservation and long-term growth of capital in inflation-adjusted terms. 

The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by applying a bottom-up, long-term global value investing philosophy across a broad range of asset classes. In a bottom-up approach, companies and securities are researched and chosen individually. The Fund normally will invest in a wide range of income-producing equity securities, including common stocks of U.S. and foreign companies that offer attractive dividend yields. The Fund also normally will invest in a wide range of fixed income instruments from markets in the United States and multiple countries around the world such as high-yield instruments (commonly referred to as ‘‘junk bonds’’), investment grade instruments and sovereign debt. Additionally, the Fund normally will invest in hybrid securities that embody elements of both equity and fixed income securities such as preferred shares and convertible bonds. The Fund may invest in securities of any maturity or investment rating, as well as unrated securities. While the Fund may hold investments in non-income producing securities, under normal market conditions at least 80% of the Fund’s assets will be comprised of income producing securities.

Strategy Highlights

As at 30 September 2022

The third quarter of 2022 was unusually volatile and largely driven by shifting investor perceptions of central bank hawkishness, against an inflationary backdrop unlike anything seen in decades. The quarter began with market indices only slightly higher than mid-June lows. By mid-July, optimism returned to markets based on declining commodity prices and a sense of a potential dovish pivot by the Fed. Equity markets reached an intra-quarter peak in mid-August, which fizzled quickly as interest rates moved sharply higher across the yield curve in response to expectations of more aggressive monetary tightening. Negative sentiment during the quarter was aided by concerns around weak earnings and geo-political instability, including the disturbing sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines towards the end of the quarter.

The S&P 500 posted a –4.9% total return in the third quarter, with the growth sub-index (-3.9%) modestly outperforming its value counterpart (-5.8%). Non-US stocks underperformed US equities as the MSCI EAFE Index delivered a -9.4% total return. As the US leads the world in hiking rates, while the ongoing energy crisis threatens countries lacking domestic fossil fuel resources, major currencies like the Euro and the Japanese Yen declined during the quarter and even reached multi-decade lows relative to the US dollar. The MSCI Emerging Markets index trailed developed market indices with a -11.6% total return.

Fixed income investors suffered from rising interest rates during the quarter, while credit spreads generally contracted from high levels reached at the end of June. Interest rates went up on both the short and long end of the curve. The 10-year Treasury began the quarter at a 3.01% yield and finished at 3.83%, while the 2 year Treasury yield moved from 2.95% to 4.28% as hopes for a Fed “pivot” in 2023 seemingly evaporated. The ICE BofA BB US High Yield Index Option-Adjusted Spread moved from 4.17% at the end of June to 3.66% at the end of September. Despite the modest spread contraction, thanks to rising base rates, the effective yield of the BB index ended the quarter at 7.72%, essentially its highest level of the year and a level not seen (except for a brief period in March 2020) in more than a decade.

Our top contributors for the quarter were ON Semiconductor, Cheniere Energy and Chart Industries. Following some weakness in the first half of the year, ON Semiconductor rallied in the third quarter on strong earnings results and significantly outperformed semiconductor peers. Both Cheniere Energy and Chart Industries operate in the LNG space and benefited from the ongoing gas crisis in Europe.

Our top detractors for the quarter were BT Group, Terna-Rete Elettrica Nazionale and International Flavors & Fragrances. BT Group suffered from concerns around subscriber growth and a potential acquisition as well as the sharp decline in the British pound. Terna, the regulated Italian electricity transmission utility, declined due to higher cost of capital expectations stemming from rising Italian bond yields, along with Euro weakness. IFF performed poorly as a relatively levered, somewhat cyclical business with a large non-US footprint.

As of month end September 2022, global equity markets were at or close to their lowest levels of the year. Interest rates are essentially at their highest levels, with credit spreads not far off their widest levels posted in July. A higher discount rate has been priced in, along with a fair amount of recession risk. In this macro-driven environment, investment performance appears to be highly dependent on when the tightening cycle will come to an end. With that in mind, many high quality businesses are now available at substantially reduced valuations, while bond yields are quite elevated relative to recent history. We are balancing between taking advantage of these attractive longterm opportunities and retaining flexibility to access even better opportunities should the volatility and negative sentiment persist.
