Fund Managers’ Monthly Report
Download Monthly Commentary
- Asian fixed income markets rose in May, buoyed by a U.S. Treasury rally that saw 10-year yields fall sharply.
Major central banks signaled that they would keep monetary policy accommodative in an effort to support
growth. In Asia, first-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) moderated in some economies, while other leading
indicators were mixed.
- In Thailand, a military coup helped stabilize the political turmoil and raised expectations of an economic
recovery, which may potentially increase capital imports and debt issuance. Consequently, both Thai bonds and
the nation’s currency, the baht, were the worst regional performers.
- Indonesia’s presidential race tightened, as front-runner Joko Widodo will now face a stronger rival after the
Golkar party threw its weight behind his main rival, Prabowo Subianto. The government revised the fiscal deficit
to 2.5% from 1.7% of GDP. The bond market closed flat but the rupiah fell against the U.S. dollar.
- In India, Narendra Modi’s landslide election victory stoked optimism over reform prospects and a revival of
investment. This lifted the bond market and the rupee, which outperformed other regional currencies.
- Philippine bonds and the peso posted solid gains after Standard & Poor’s upgraded the country’s rating,
highlighting the low inflation, robust external liquidity and effective monetary policy framework.
- Australian government bonds rallied during the month, with 10-year yields falling more steeply than their threeyear
counterparts. Economic data were mixed. The central bank left the cash rate unchanged and retained a more
neutral stance, indicating a period of stability. Corporate credits delivered modest returns, led by non-financials.
