Fund Commentary

MARKET
U.S. Treasury yields in the front-end raised upon Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s renomination, and closed the month lower as the new Omicron variant has increased front-end rate movement and volatility.
The Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) remained unchanged at 0.05%. Three-month LIBOR increased to 0.17%, and the three-month U.S. Treasury bill closed unchanged at 0.05%.
Total U.S. investment-grade corporate issuance was $101 billion in November, slightly exceeding street expectations of $100 billion.

OUTLOOK
With a possible acceleration of tapering and market volatility across the board, we remain cautious to adding duration relative to the index in our portfolio.
We look to maximize return opportunities in higher yielding products through our participation in asset-backed securities and corporate bond new issue deals. Against an uncertain macroeconomic backdrop, we continue to add cautiously where there is relative value, focusing on investment grade securities for both value and liquidity. Floating-rate instrument remain an important allocation given their short duration profile and yield advantage. Securitized products had mixed returns for the month due to their tightened yield over U.S. Treasury caused by heavy supply and market interest rate volatility. We are vigilant in adding floating-rate notes and two-year holdings in anticipation of higher front-end rates.
