STANLIB Money Market Fund - Sep 18

2019/01/03 00:00:00
Fund review
The Stanlib Money Market fund size grew from R24.2bn in the second quarter of 2018, to R24.4bn in the third quarter of 2018. As at the end of the quarter, money market rates closed off higher due to a weaker Rand. 12months NCD rates moved from 8.025% to its highs of 8.40%, with the latter levels last seen in 2015. 12months Jibar linked notes traded around 90bps over 3 month Jibar. The 3 month Jibar rate moved higher, from 6.958% to close off the quarter at 7.008%, taking direction from the movements in the NCD rates. Although our fund attribution remained overweight Jibar linkers, we managed to realize added value from the NCD purchases done in the long-end of the curve.
Market overview
The market remained volatile during the quarter under review, as markets experienced large cash out flows due to recent developments in EM markets. The local currency depreciated to its highs of R15.53/$ aided by heighted global risk aversion towards EM markets. However, the local currency retreated towards the end of the quarter to close off at R14.12/$ as the USD weakened due to uncertainties around the trade tariffs agreements. The outcome of the quarter two GDP number that was released in the month of September, saw South Africa experiencing its first technical recession since the financial crisis in 2009. This resulted in the 2018 GDP number being revised lower from 1.2% to 0.7% as the economy is expected to remain under pressure. The 2018 inflation is expected to average 4.8%, as consumers are struggling to keep up with recent fuel hikes and VAT increases. Overall, the SARB remains concerned about keeping the inflation rate at the midpoint of the target range.
Looking ahead
While SARB left the repo rate unchanged at 6.50% at the September meeting, the votes were a close call with 3 of the members voting for a rate hike, while 4 members kept their view on hold. The monetary decisions that are to follow, will be closely monitored, more so as inflation is expected to edge closer to the upper end of the target band in 2019. The FRA’s are pricing in only an 11% probability of a 25bps hike at the November meeting, however with up to 50bps hike priced in, in a year’s time. October will be an important month as the Minister of Finance will deliver the MTBPS, while rating agency Moody’s is also expected to give their review on SA’s rating in the same month.
