Fund Managers’ Monthly Report
- The rising momentum in developed market government bond yields was countered by disappointing U.S. economic
data and rising geopolitical risks surrounding Ukraine, leaving rates broadly unchanged over the month.
- In Canada, encouraging economic data initially lifted bond yields, but Ukraine concerns reversed this to end the
month with yields broadly unchanged.
- Australian government bond yields ended the month virtually unchanged, in line with U.S. Treasuries. In New
Zealand, front-end yields rose slightly ahead of the central bank’s anticipated benchmark interest rate hike.
- Emerging market debt rebounded in February thanks to some positive central bank policy-making and the market’s
realization that certain idiosyncratic events did not imply wider negative contagion. Local currency government
debt outperformed its hard currency counterpart, led by Indonesia, which returned nearly 10%, while Brazil and
South Africa also rallied. High-yield credits outperformed investment grade, as both Argentina and Venezuela
bounced back following poor returns in January.
- All G-101 currencies appreciated against the U.S. dollar, led by the Norwegian krone and New Zealand dollar; the Japanese yen posted the smallest gain for the month.
1The 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.
