Market development

Global equities continued to march higher as the global vaccinations accelerated and the strength of corporate earnings persisted. The expanded infrastructure stimulus plan in the US also lifted the positive sentiment. The Fed struck a more hawkish tone in the month of June, signaling that tapering and rate hikes seemed likely to start sooner than previously thought, though both remain conditional on continued progress toward full employment and price stability. . It seemed as if the Fed was preparing in advance of any actual policy withdrawal to avoid any severe taper tantrum. The yield curve flattened, the 10-year Treasury yield receded from its first quarter’s high and inflation breakeven moved lower as the risk of an inflation overshoot from an 'overly' dovish Fed now receded. IT, Energy and Healthcare outperformed while Materials, Financials (on the back of the lower yield) and Utilities underperformed. On the gender equality front, according to the World Economic Forum it will take 267 years to close the economic gender gap, which is sobering news, but also an opportunity to accelerate change.

Expectation of fund manager

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundFacts.date,'llll') ]}}

The rollout of Covid-19 vaccinations continues to accelerate globally and social activities will be picking up over the summer months. The global economy is moving through the recovery phase with continued progress in employment and stimulus support. From a market’s perspective, given the expanded equity valuation and high investor sentiment, we see that investors may start to factor in the eventual withdrawal of liquidity from central banks on the equity market and the consequence of higher input costs on corporate margins. The fund management remains selective on stocks and continues to focus on sustainable companies that exhibit a high degree of gender equality, have strong fundamentals and are able to deliver consistent earnings over the cycle.
