Anchor BCI Bond Fund - Dec 19

2020/02/14 00:00:00
A..er a solid 11.1% return for 2019, our a..en..on is shi..ing towards the year ahead. The outcome for 1Q20 will be dominated by the SA government’s ability to make difficult decisions that will steady Eskom, open up the power market and deal with the excessive debt burden. Market consensus is that SA will lose its last investment grade ra..ng on 27 March when Moody’s announces its decision. This is certainly possible, although we are of the view that some trac..on on the Eskom crisis and a sensible “austerity” budget from Finance Minister Tito Mboweni at the end of February will be enough for the ra..ng agency to give us a stay of execu..on un..l its visit on 20 November.
A good outcome means two interest rate cuts this year, while a bad outcome means two rate hikes. 2020 is going to be a year of binary outcomes, with event risk around every corner.
We remain cau..ously op..mis..c at this stage.
