Prudential Global Equity Fdr comment - Dec 19

2020/02/25 00:00:00
The year ended on a high note for global equities as investors were able to breathe a sigh of relief on the back of a firm Phase 1 trade agreement between the US and China, as well as a decisive Tory election victory in the UK that paved the way for a less-uncertain Brexit. These events helped to improve sentiment towards global growth in 2020, as did the backdrop of easy global monetary policy, sparking a strong global equities rally. US equity markets reached fresh record highs in late December, helping global equities record their best annual gains since 2009 - the MSCI All Country World Index returned 27.3% for the year (in US$). In the face of brighter growth prospects, the Fed left interest rates on hold, and its December “dot plot” forecast pointed to no changes through 2020 and one 25bp rate hike in 2021. The central bank also noted that the US economic outlook was favourable. In the Eurozone, Christine Lagarde (the ECB’s new President) kept interest rates on hold at its December meeting and confirmed that its bond buying stimulus programme had re-started on 1 November. The Chinese economy continued to slow during the month, hurt by the trade war’s negative impact on Chinese exports and manufacturing. The government’s ongoing stimulus measures, including tax cuts, infrastructure spending and lower bank reserve requirements, have helped to cushion the broader economy, but December saw increasing pressure on the central bank to initiate further monetary easing.
Looking at global equity market returns (all in US$), emerging markets outperformed developed markets, with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index returning 7.5% and the MSCI World Index delivering 3.0%. Among developed markets, the S&P 500 produced 3.0%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average produced 1.9%, while the technology-heavy NASDAQ posted 4.0%. The UK's FTSE 100 returned 5.3% and Japan's Nikkei 225 delivered 2.5%. The rand strengthened 4.4% against the US dollar, 2.1% against the pound sterling and 2.5% versus the euro.
Rand strength against the US dollar dampened performance in December. In US dollar terms, exposure to US, European and Asian equities (both Japan and Asia ex. Japan) contributed to performance in December. Global emerging market equities also contributed significantly.
