Fund Managers’ Monthly Report
- Global fixed income markets closed with mixed performance in February, as risk appetite weakened following an
inconclusive Italian election. U.S. 10-year Treasury yields fell by more than 10 basis points (bps) to 1.88%, after the
Federal Reserve reiterated its commitment to buying government bonds.
- In developed markets, Australian bond yields fell across the curve, as weaker economic data raised the likelihood of
monetary policy easing. However, New Zealand bond yields rose, given that positive retail sales, manufacturing
activity and confidence indicators signalled an accelerating recovery.
- Bonds rallied in Canada after economic growth stagnated in the fourth quarter, while 10-year UK yields also fell in
view of sluggish consumer spending and signs of slower manufacturing activity ahead.
- Emerging market debt posted modest losses. The JPMorgan EMBI Global Diversified Index fell 0.31% and the
benchmark spread widened by 21 bps to 283 bps over 10-year U.S. Treasuries. Venezuela and Ukraine
outperformed, whereas Argentina fared the worst. In local currency debt, Indonesia and Nigeria performed well, but
Hungary and Poland lagged the overall market.
- Currency markets remained volatile, as the U.S. dollar appreciated against most of its G10 nation peers. The British
pound sterling weakened after Moody’s downgraded Britain’s credit rating by one notch to Aa1, while the
performance of the euro lagged.
