Fund Managers’ Monthly Report
- Global fixed income markets posted modest gains in October as the U.S. Congress reached a deal to resolve the
fiscal impasse and end a government shutdown. Softer consumer and business confidence owing to the political
brinkmanship, however, led to a temporary moderation of U.S. economic growth. Yields of 10-year U.S. Treasuries
and gilts fell to 2.55% and 2.62%, respectively, during the month.
- In Canada, the central bank removed its tightening bias after downgrading the economy’s outlook. This change in
stance saw domestic bonds outperform their U.S. equivalents across the yield curve.
- In contrast, the performance of Australian government bonds lagged their U.S. counterparts. Economic data were
mixed, while the central bank left the cash rate unchanged at 2.5%. Australian credit outperformed Commonwealth
government bonds. New Zealand bonds, meanwhile, kept pace with U.S. Treasuries, as improvement in dairy exports
helped narrow the nation’s September trade deficit.
- For emerging markets, high-yield credits, including those in Argentina, Bolivia, Honduras and Ukraine, outperformed
their counterparts elsewhere, whereas Jamaica and Lithuania posted more modest returns. In local currency debt,
Indonesia, Nigeria and Malaysia led the gains, but Chile lagged.
- Among G10H currencies, the Australian dollar appreciated the most against the U.S. dollar, whereas the Canadian
dollar was the worst performer.
H The G10 member nations include the U.S., UK, Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands,
