Global Positive Return Feeder comment - Sept 18

2018/12/19 00:00:00
Trade war rhetoric was once again the primary source of market volatility last month. Initially, markets were buoyed by lower than expected tariffs placed on imports by both the US and China, as the trade war was then deemed to be less severe than initially expected. At the same time, the US invited China to further trade talks, on which practitioners were most likely placing a high probability of a promising outcome. This quickly changed when China called off the talks, which sent emerging markets into a tailspin. The MSCI World index added 4.53% in Q3 as demand for quality assets rose. Conversely, the MSCI Emerging Markets index lost - 2.02% over the same period as risk off sentiment took its toll. US and EU markets were mostly up over the quarter with the S&P 500 and the CAC40 indices closing 7.20% and 3.19% up respectively. The DAX index lost -0.48% in Q3 as fears grew that Germany was next in line to face the wrath of Trump's nationalist policies. The Global Positive Return Fund ended the month up 0.5% driven mainly by its developed market exposure.
