Select Manager Flexible Growth FoFcomment - Jun 07

2007/10/03 00:00:00
Global Market Overview Global equity markets displayed a significant degree of volatility during June, with few developed markets posting positive returns. This resulted in the MSCI AC World $ index losing 0.3% over the month. In contrast, some emerging markets posted very solid returns, such a Russia, which rose 6.6% assisted by the stronger oil price. The MSCI Emerging market $ index ended 4.4% higher for the month.
In the currency markets, the dollar ended lower against most major currencies. It lost 1.4% against the pound, closing above the 2 dollar-to-the-pound level. In the commodity markets, oil prices rose sharply whilst most precious metals closed slightly lower. Brent Crude ended 6.6% higher during the month, which brings the rise to 23.2% for the year-to-date.
Concerns about the health of the US economy eased over the past three months as incoming data pointed to a notably improved growth rate, this despite a still weak housing market. The rest of the world continues to grow strongly, with emerging Asia and the Euro-area leading the charge and growth forecasts still being revised upwards. Consequently, across the globe there is ongoing concern about inflation and central banks are still hiking interest rates. These include Australia, New Zealand, the UK and EU. Global interest rate risks remain skewed to the upside as growth is strong and underlying inflation risks have risen. However, we do not believe policymakers will tighten so aggressively as to risk a serious growth downturn in 2008.
Last month we noted that with real yields rising, one of the large positive drivers for equities is slowly diminishing, namely excess liquidity. This is not to say equity markets can't rally further. With earnings still solid, public participation in equity markets still relatively low and fair valuations, equity markets could likely continue its rally for longer. It is however important to note that early warning signs are starting to appear and even greater vigilance is necessary.
