Eurozone equity markets made strong gains in September buoyed by the accommodating messages emanating from central banks and positive messages from Chinese and US leaders on the progress of their trade talks. The air strike on oil and gas infrastructure in Saudi Arabia also briefly sent oil prices soaring. In this context, all sectors ended the month higher, headed by financial, energy and public utility stocks, while consumer discretionary, health and industrial stocks trailed.
The sub-fund significantly outperformed its benchmark over the month, largely thanks to stock picking. The biggest positive contributors were Axa, Saint-Gobain and Intesa Sanpaolo. Among the biggest negative contributors, on the other hand, were Capgemini, Accor and Fresenius SE.
As part of our ongoing dialogue with Enel, Italy's leading public utilities group, the company set out for us its target of zero CO2 emissions by 2050, which is central to the group's strategy. By steering its generating portfolio towards renewables, the group is gradually shifting its energy mix towards more sustainable energy sources. Network management is gradually being computerised, which will ultimately generate major energy savings thanks to greater flexibility and better control of the infrastructure. On the way to its 2050 target, the group has also set itself a series of intermediate targets, aiming to reduce emissions by 15% from the 2015 baseline by 2020, and by 44% by 2030. By thus setting itself even tougher targets than those enacted in the Paris agreements, Enel now figures as a key player in energy transition within its sector.
We closed out our position in Philips and reduced our position in CNH Industrial, which have reached or gotten nearer to their valuation targets. We also reduced our positions in Orange, Carrefour, Saint-Gobain and Merck, and added to those in BASF, Deutsche Telekom, Klépierre, Continental, BNP Paribas, Intesa Sanpaolo, Banco Santander and Siemens.
At the end of September, the portfolio's ESG rating was unchanged at AA+.
