STANLIB Extra Income Fund - Sep 19

2019/10/29 00:00:00
Fund review
For the quarter under review the fund increased in size from R11.1 billion to R12 billion. The modified duration of the fund remained at 0.11 years at the end of September. The fund continued to deliver cash-plus returns over the quarter.
Market overview
Ongoing global trade tensions continued to negatively affect confidence in the third quarter of 2019, putting further strain on emerging market assets. The rand was on the back foot, losing about 6% against the dollar, while the 10-year benchmark government bond was almost 20 basis points weaker at the end of the quarter. The global backdrop still remains supportive of emerging market bonds due to an increasing number of negative-yielding bonds and lower-trending inflation globally. The US Federal Reserve Bank cut interest rates for the first time since the financial crisis, indicating that these are mid-cycle cuts to provide “insurance” against weaker growth rather than a longer-term policy change. The Fed’s cuts have encouraged emerging market central banks, including the SARB, which are facing declining inflation and slowing growth, to follow suit. This provides further support for emerging market yields to perform well despite the volatility driven by the US/China trade war. South African headline inflation moderated to a low of 4% y/y in the quarter and is expected to average 4.2% for the year. The government issued a Eurobond that was over-subscribed, raising $5 billion instead of the $4 billion that was planned initially. This will go a long way towards improving the government’s funding requirements ahead of the MTBPS late in October. There has been some compression in the yield curve as the government is not considering any more switch auctions for this calendar year, easing pressure in the ultra-long end of the curve with issuances. At a conference held in SA in September, Moody’s stated that SA’s fiscal deterioration over the past decade has been in line with the median Baa3 countries. This improves SA’s prospects of avoiding a downgrade, with the worst-case scenario being an outlook change from stable to negative. Moody’s sees the structure of SA’s debt as having lower refinancing risk than its peers. The South African CDS spread is trading wider than comparable peers that are already in junk territory, meaning that the markets have already priced in a downgrade to junk status. A reprieve from Moody’s would give SA an opportunity to produce a credible economic restructuring plan to deal with persistent fiscal slippage and stimulate economic growth prospects. If there is no downgrade, this will be positive for the bond market.
Looking ahead
With survey data in the US and eurozone continuing to point to a slowdown in growth, coupled with dim growth prospects locally and inflation that is firmly inside the target range, local bonds are still expected to offer attractive returns given their compelling real yields in comparison to their peers. The wider currency and credit risk premiums built into bond prices are expected to gradually unwind after the October MTBPS and Moody’s rating announcements. Globally, the ECB will resume its open-ended quantitative easing programme in the fourth quarter and the Fed is expected to continue cutting interest rates to manage the slowdown in the US economy. This leaves room for the SARB to cut rates in November.
