Fund Commentary

MARKET
Jobs data for March in the US came in strong and provided a nice bounce-back from the February numbers. Good data continued in Europe and China with PMI service data in the former and manufacturing data in the latter beating expectations. Article 50 was extended to October 31st in the UK and Prime Minister May said she would be working with opposition leader Corbyn to find a way to end the stalemate. Both the US Federal Reserve (Fed) and the European Central Bank (ECB) continued to take a dovish stance. As such risk markets continued to be upbeat with credit markets outperforming developed sovereign debt.
Most developed sovereign bond yields moved higher over the course of the month. The British pound was the strongest performing currency in G10 space as the extension to Article 50 and collaboration between May and Corbyn point towards a softer approach to Brexit.

OUTLOOK
Should the labour market remain robust and growth dynamics improve we believe the Fed could hike later in the year.
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 at the start of the year we expect momentum in the eurozone will pick up later in the year and believe the ECB will continue to be cautious and accommodative over the foreseeable future. However, 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 believe sentiment toward sterling markets will continue to be subdued by Brexit related uncertainty. The fund outperformed its benchmark by 23 basis points net of fees.
