Investec Money Market comment - Jun 13

2013/09/06 00:00:00
Market and portfolio review After a relatively muted start to the year, money market yields moved substantially higher during the second quarter. The period was characterised by a sharp increase in volatility as assets reacted to central bank rhetoric. Initially, positive sentiment prevailed, thanks to unprecedented monetary policy easing by the Bank of Japan. However, US Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Ben Bernanke's statement that the Fed may consider reducing its current bond-buying programme sparked a significant sell-off in yields. This led to the 12-month NCD selling off 80 basis points from May lows. The rand was one of the worst performers of a basket of major currencies as risk assets sold off in tandem. The All Bond Index lost 2.3% over the quarter. Bernanke's 'tapering talk' (scaling back asset purchases) signals a fundamental shift in dynamics. The tailwinds that have driven global yields sharply lower over the last five years are likely to be less supportive in future. The turnabout in expectations was evident in the forward rate agreements, which started to price in aggressive rate hikes after having priced in a high probability of a further interest rate cut in May. On the local front, the weaker rand could result in CPI breaching the top end of the target band and remaining at around the 6% level. Growth and activity levels will continue to be a concern, leaving the South African Reserve Bank to weigh up higher inflation against a weak growth backdrop. Our central view is for rates to remain on hold for longer.
Portfolio activity and positioning Although tailwinds have shifted, we believe the move in yields is overdone in the short term and that on a fundamental basis, money market yields are showing value. We added a small amount of long-dated exposure to the portfolio into weakness. However, we continue to be cautious as momentum is high and volatility is likely to persist. Overall, we remain neutrally positioned.
