Fund Commentary

MARKET
Emerging market (EM) fixed income saw mixed performance in February. Returns in EM sovereign and corporate credit were positive, as yields compressed against U.S. Treasuries. In contrast, weakness in select higher-yielding EM currencies led to modestly negative overall returns in EM local debt. Expectations for a near-term trade truce between the U.S. and China, along with a message of patience from Fed officials continued to provide support for risk markets. However, optimism was tempered by valuations following the sharp rally to start the year, as well as subdued global economic data.

OUTLOOK
In 2018, negative EM returns were primarily driven by exogenous factors like Fed tightening, trade disputes and slowing global economic activity, though select countries like Argentina and Turkey struggled more given weaker policy settings. To start 2019, market trepidation around several of these factors has eased; Fed hikes appear closer to ending and the U.S. and China appear to be engaged in constructive negotiations. While we remain alert to the risks around softer global growth, we are encouraged by the prudent monetary and fiscal response of most EM countries to the external environment.
We believe investors are well served to consider emerging market debt (EMD) as a strategic asset allocation and opportunistically add to the asset class in periods of weakness. On whole, EM countries enjoy favourable fundamentals including higher growth rates and lower debt burdens than developed countries. EM debt offers an attractive diversification and income opportunity, and long-term risk-adjusted returns consistently stand among the strongest in global fixed income. The technical backdrop is supported by limited net issuance of U.S. dollar bonds and structural allocations to EMD by global institutional investors.
