Fund Managers’ Monthly Report
- Developed market government bonds continued to rally through May as the market largely ignored more positive
U.S. economic data. In Europe, the European Central Bank president strongly hinted at interest rate cuts, while the
Bank of England quarterly inflation report was more dovish than expected.
- In Canada, 10-year government bond yields fell more than their U.S. counterparts, as domestic macroeconomic
- Australian government bond yields fell and the yield curve flattened further, in line with the U.S. and amid mixed
economic data. In New Zealand, yields in the front end of the curve rose on expectations of further rate hikes,
but those at the long end rallied in line with core markets.
- Emerging market debt (EMD) advanced, spurred on by perceived easing of Ukraine geopolitical risk and the rally in
developed world rates, which made EMD more attractive to investors. Ukraine and Russia outperformed the overall
EMD market, while Argentina was the only country to post negative returns. Local currency debt was strong, yet
underperformed its hard currency counterparts. The Philippine market performed well, while Thailand lagged as the
country experienced yet another military coup.
- Among G-101 currencies, the Canadian dollar and Japanese yen appreciated the most against the U.S. dollar,
while the Swedish krona and Swiss franc depreciated.
1 The G-10 nations include 11 industrial countries (Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands,
Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the U.S.) which consult and cooperate on economic, monetary and financial matters.
