Fund Commentary

MARKET
Early in December Trade war rhetoric was not escalated at the G20 summit and instead a 90-day truce was declared between the US and China on further tariffs giving some short-term support to risk sentiment. In the UK, Theresa May postponed a parliamentary vote on her latest Brexit deal which led to a vote of confidence in her, being triggered by her party, which she subsequently survived. As the month developed, risk sentiment soured as investors worried about global growth, a plummeting oil price, tighter monetary policy and political uncertainty. US dollar investment-grade corporates underperformed their euro and sterling-denominated counterparts.
Developed sovereign yields fell sharply during the month with 10-year yields on US Treasuries falling 30 basis points and 10-year German Bunds reaching a low yield of 0.20%. Due to its safe-haven status, the Japanese yen outperformed its G10 peers. The fund underperformed its benchmark by 51 basis points net of fees.

OUTLOOK
A robust labour market and stable growth dynamics should allow the Federal Reserve to raise rates marginally above market expectations by end 2019.
Even with 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 we expect momentum will pick up later in the year and believe the European Central Bank (ECB) will continue to be cautious and accommodative over the foreseeable future. However, we believe that given strengths and improvement in the economy the ECB will be able to remove some of their ultra-accommodative policies faster than currently priced in.
For now, we expect sentiment toward sterling markets will continue to be subdued by Brexit related uncertainty.
