Global equity markets as measured by the MSCI World Index fell 2%, in US dollar terms, during the month of August.

Financial markets buckled on 5 August after China escalated the trade war with the US, sending stocks lower and sparking a rally in global bonds. The VIX Index surged about 40%, and the 10-year Treasury yield dropped to the lowest level since before President Donald Trump’s election.

Expectation of fund manager

Global equity markets were further spooked when the 10-year Treasury rate slid below the two-year rate for the first time since 2007. Previously, such inversions preceded recessions. The signal’s reliability should be taken with caution, especially given the high level of Central Bank activity in the bond market over the past 10 years. Market volatility has opened up new investible opportunities for the fund which, as expected, continues to feature attractive valuation, strong business fundamentals and improving business momentum.
