Fund Managers’ Monthly Report
Download Quarterly Commentary
- Weak commodity prices and concerns about Chinese economic growth caused Chilean stocks to
end lower in September, although they outperformed the broader Latin American equity market.
- Retail sales grew in August, while unemployment edged higher to 6.7%. In an effort to support
the slowing economy, the government plans to increase spending on infrastructure and
education in 2015.
- In Fund-related corporate news, Latam Airlines posted mixed traffic figures in August, with a
recovery in passenger numbers counterbalanced by weakness in the cargo business. Retailer
Cencosud’s second-quarter results were hampered by margin pressure in Colombia and Brazil,
although revenues remained robust across the business.
- Retailer Falabella bought the Peruvian home improvement company Maestro for US$490 million,
which should increase the contribution of its Peruvian business to 24% of total sales. The
company also plans to open new discount supermarkets there, targeting the lower-income
consumer. We are supportive of these decisions, which we believe will provide new revenue
streams in Peru.
- In September, we pared the position in pulp and paper company CMPC following a rebound in its
share price. We also reduced the holdings in electric utility Enersis and mall operator Parque
Arauco on share price strength.
