Download Monthly Commentary
- Global government bond yields declined in August amid prospects for renewed monetary easing from the
European Central Bank, and heightened geopolitical tensions in the Middle East, and between the West and
Russia, over Ukraine.
- In Canada, yields fell but underperformed comparable-duration U.S. Treasuries. Australian long-dated yields
fell in line with those in the U.S., as unemployment surprisingly jumped to 6.4%. Conversely, New Zealand
bonds underperformed the overall market, as unemployment rates fell, while a further rise in the central bank’s
benchmark interest rate is expected later this year.
- In emerging market debt investment-grade assets outperformed high yield, while on an individual country
basis, Ecuador and Belize had the strongest returns. Local currency debt underperformed hard currency bonds.
The South African, Brazilian and Mexican markets performed well in both rates and currency terms, while Chile,
Russia and Colombia declined due to negative currency returns.
- Among G-10H currencies, the Norwegian krone and Australian dollar appreciated the most notably against the
U.S. dollar, while the Danish krone and euro saw the greatest depreciation.
