Catella AB – Interim Report January-September 2019

Catella continues to grow and total income increased by 10% in year-on-year terms. The increase was largely due to fixed earnings as a result of continued growth in Property Investment Management which increased assets under management by some SEK 34 Bn year-on-year. Operating profit/loss decreased by SEK 18 M burdened by increased personnel and rental costs in connection with the start-up of new operations in Property Investment Management and new product initiatives, which are an important part of our strategy for continued growth. Net financial income/expense in the quarter was negatively affected by impairment losses of SEK 85 M attributable to the loan portfolios, which had a book value of SEK 141 M at the end of the third quarter.

Can fixed income hedges generate returns when rates are negative?

After a large post-summer slide, Sweden now has negative interest rates. A Swedish ten-year government bond is at -0.2 percent, while the ten-year US treasury has fallen to 1.7 percent after having been over 3 percent. Sweden’s Riksbank governor Stefan Ingves has battled to raise inflation, which is about 1.5 percent. This means that a “parked” investment that should be really secure generates a negative return of around -1.7 percent after inflation. What can you do in a market like this? The fixed income managers for Catella Hedgefond and Credit Opportunity, Stefan Wigstrand and Thomas Elofsson, spend their days thinking about just this.

European Logistics Markets: High transaction prices, high rents, low yields

The European market for logistics property is part of the boom in the European real estate markets. Demand is increasing, while the supply of new properties is hardly keeping pace. As a result, transaction prices and rents are rising, while yields are falling. It is only a matter of time before yields drop below the 4.00% threshold. Investors therefore need to pay particular attention to potential regions. Catella Research has analysed the European logistics scene, covering 109 logistics locations in 104 regions.

Catella will write down two loan portfolios during the third quarter of 2019 amounting to approximately SEK 82 M

During the third quarter of 2019, Catella will write down two loan portfolios, Lusitano 3 and Lusitano 5. The write-down is due to the issuing bank having exercised its option (“Time call”) to repurchase the loan portfolio Lusitano 3, which is written down with approximately SEK 51 M. In view of the above, the assumptions for Lusitano 5 has been changed. Lusitano 5 may be repurchased during the second quarter of 2021. This negatively affects its forecasted cash flow and is therefore written down with approximately SEK 31 M.

Investor Survey 2019

A few weeks ago, we once again asked the German multi-asset managers about their attitude and perspective when it comes to real estate. Especially since the signs have changed: Looking back, the real estate year 2019 will go down in history as the era in which value-added investment strategies structurally replaced traditional core-investment-styles. Structurally, because there are no signs of a significant change in the interest rate landscape. In addition, there are changes at the macroeconomic level: it is becoming more and more obvious that classical property selection, applied to selected markets using a top-down approach, is becoming more and more ambitious. In the current transaction market, it is clear that the majority of investments are primarily made on a deal-by-deal basis.

Investment locations Germany 2019: Residential – rents and yields

The German housing markets have now reached the heart of political life. The coalition agreement not only provides for the rent indexes to be standardised or qualified, but also for the "actual tenancies" to be recorded. Nevertheless, the question arises as to how the markets have actually functioned in recent decades?

A visit to Garpenberg

The Garpenberg mine is situated in the municipality of Hedemora, in one of the oldest mining areas of Sweden still in operation. Ore extraction in the Garpenberg area began as early as the 13th century, and in the 14th century German miners were engaged to improve the mining techniques and make them more efficient. The locals called the Germans ‘garpar’, which later gave the town of Garpenberg its name.

Actively managing equities at Catella

Catella applies various management processes and strategies, depending on the product. We have a fundamental approach, and conduct our analysis from a sector perspective. With our actively managed long-only equity funds, Catella Sverige Aktiv Hållbarhet and Catella Småbolagsfond, our teams work closely together to analyse companies, trends and themes in the Nordic stock markets. The fundamental analysis of large and small companies is conducted in a similar way, with the main difference being the consideration of liquidity risks for each company. To be able to justify a higher liquidity risk in a small company, this risk must be reflected in a greater potential upside for the share.

Finland Residential Market Tracker Q2 2019

What do you think of when you hear the term "residential real estate investments"? And what else do you think of when you hear the term "Finland"? An exotic combination? It may be that a holiday home in Karelia in the slowly approaching summer spontaneously comes to mind. But investors traditionally see it more rationally. An asset class and a market with clear upwards potential is the current picture they see. The combination unites exactly two aspects that have come on the radar of investors in recent years in search of attractive investments.

After the rain comes the sun

It is always darkest before dawn, an expression that can in retrospect describe the conclusion of last year and the beginning of 2019. During the late autumn and, to a greater extent, all the way into the Christmas holiday, the financial markets were dominated by a strongly negative sentiment, with economic worries exacerbated by a continued belief in monetary policy tightening. The preferred interpretation was clearly negative, and 2018 closed on a low note. With the first quarter now over, we can instead look back on an absolutely fantastic start to the year, with almost all the worries blown away – at least when it comes to stock market performance.

Insights from a fund manager: Should you invest in shares when your gut feeling suggests uncertainty?

I fielded a question at an investor meeting this week: “What should you do when your gut feeling says the stock market cannot rise any further but the interest rate on deposits is still zero?” I think there are many of us who can feel these reservations. The big underlying issue is how we feel about the economy. Is this just a pause or are we heading for a fall, and in that case how steep a fall? Economic fluctuations are tricky. They rarely come when you expect them, and they are even more rarely calm and rational since the market constantly overreacts. And both Brexit and a trade war are lurking in the shadows, reinforcing the uncertainty. Nonetheless, the stock market has been exceptionally strong at the start of the year and it is difficult to find good alternatives to shares when interest rates are so low. So, what should we turn to if we have that gut feeling the questioner expressed at the seminar?

Food courts as the key to repositioning German shopping centres

The wave of digital transformation has been one of the most discussed topics in recent years, and the emergence of the e-commerce market is one of the direct impacts that most of us encounter in our everyday lives. The practical option of having goods delivered to your front door, in some cases even on the same day they are ordered, has long since proved to be a structural threat to the retail sector. Shopping centres appear to be the most affected by this change and are under strong transformation pressure. The creation of "shopping experiences" and the focus on leisure shopping, it seems, are some of the most significant strategic options for repositioning. At the core is a strong focus on food & beverage (F&B) in shopping centres, more gastronomy and sufficient experience to manage this transformation process.

Catella AB – Year-end Report 2018

Since the third quarter of 2018, the Banking business area has been reported as a disposal group held for sale. Total income from remaining operations in the quarter was in line with the previous year, despite significantly lower variable earnings in Equity, Hedge and Fixed Income Funds and Property Investment Management, which emphasises Catella’s stable earnings platform. Assets under management increased by SEK 21.9 Bn in the year, with the acquisition of APAM contributing SEK 15.9 Bn, which increases Catella’s fixed earnings, although the main benefit is derived from increased opportunities to generate performance-based fees by creating value for our customers. Compared to the previous year, external and personnel expenses increased in the quarter, due to initiatives in Property Investment Management and Equity, Hedge and Fixed Income Funds. These proactive initiatives, in combination with significantly lower performance-based income, affected operating profit, which was down by 60% year-on-year.
