Fund Managers’ Monthly Report
Download Monthly Commentary
- Most global core government bond yields fell in December due to deflationary pressures from sharply lower oil
prices. Expectations grew for sovereign bond purchases by the European Central Bank. However, the U.S. market
bucked the trend as shorter-term yields rose after the Federal Reserve signalled it was on track to hike interest
rates in 2015.
- As commodity prices fell, the economic outlooks for exporters Canada and Australia waned and their bonds
outperformed comparable-duration U.S. Treasuries over the month. Likewise, New Zealand followed suit.
- Emerging market debt suffered as general risk-aversion and the plunge in oil prices affected exporting nations’
credits. Investment-grade securities outperformed high yield bonds as Venezuela and Ukraine were the
weakest-performing markets. Local currency debt underperformed its hard currency counterpart, as Russia and
Brazil posted losses attributable mainly to declines in the ruble and real, respectively. Conversely, oil importers
Thailand and the Philippines outperformed the overall market with higher currency returns.
- The U.S. dollar strengthened against all other G-10 currencies in December. The New Zealand dollar and British
pound were most resilient, while the Norwegian krone and Australian dollar saw the largest depreciation.
