Investment Strategy

The purpose of the Global Inflation-Linked Bond Fund is to provide investors with the diversification benefit of holding global inflation-linked securities (GILS) as a portion of their overall fixed-income allocation. Inflation-linked securities protect investors from unforeseen jumps in global inflation as the fund’s holdings accrue actual inflation while also earning a real yield. The fund’s benchmark, the G-7 Barclays Global Inflation-Linked Index, is composed exclusively of government securities issued by G-7 countries and 100% of the fund’s holdings are government-issued debt. Currency-hedged and currency-exposed share classes are available. As investors may use this fund as a form of inflation insurance within their overall portfolio, the fund will not hold any non-government issued debt to ensure returns remain consistent with a global inflation-linked product.

Fund Commentary

MARKET
July started with US President Trump threatening to impose tariffs on European automakers and $34 billion worth of Chinese goods. The US eventually gained a few concessions from the EU and tariffs on automakers were subsequently avoided. The US economy continued to add jobs in July and combined with generally positive corporate earnings, risk markets fared well over the month. Euro and US dollar denominated investment-grade corporates outperformed their sterling counterparts as they were subject to Brexit related volatility.
Governor Carney of the Bank of England expressed confidence in the UK economy. Theresa May outlined a softer approach to Brexit which subsequently saw the resignation of the Brexit Minister and the Foreign Secretary. Although sterling rose initially in response, it ended the month lower against most of its G10 peers as political wrangling weighed on markets.
The European Central Bank left monetary policy unchanged in July. Rumours of changes to Japan's current stimulus by the Bank of Japan (BoJ) caused developed sovereign debt yields to rise. At month end the BoJ decided to increase their tolerance to stray away from their 0%, 10-year yield target and increased Topix ETF purchases. Inflation-linked universe of bonds marginally outperformed their conventional counterparts.

OUTLOOK
A robust labour market and stable growth dynamics should allow the Federal Reserve to raise rates marginally above market expectations by end 2019. However, US bond yields at longer maturities may only see a modest rise from here.
Despite strong economic prospects for the US economy, we believe that a combination of monetary policy convergence, a protectionist attitude from the US administration and a current account deficit will weigh modestly on the US dollar.
Despite softening data in the eurozone in the first quarter of 2018 we believe momentum in the eurozone will pick up and expect the European Central Bank (ECB) will continue to be cautious and accommodative over the foreseeable future. However, we anticipate that with strengths and improvement in the economy, the ECB will be able to remove some of their ultra-accommodative policies faster than currently priced-in.
We expect that the BoJ will stay with its 0%, 10-year yield curve target for now. We believe that lower inflation outlooks in Japan made it necessary to adjust the tolerance around this target higher.
