Management report - 4th Quarter 2019

Eurozone sovereign bond prices fell in the fourth quarter of 2019. The JPMorgan GBI EMU Bond index posted negative performance of 2.89%. Periphery country bonds fell by 2.58% while the sub-index for the core eurozone countries (excluding periphery debt) lost 3.12% over the quarter. The Germany 10-year bond yield rose from -0.57% to -0.19% over the period. The ECB is keeping its interest rates unchanged. The main refinancing interest rate is unchanged at 0% and the deposit facility will continue at -0.50%. On 1 November, Christine Lagarde began her eight-year term as President of the ECB, taking over from Mario Draghi. Eurozone inflation remains low at 1.3% and the unemployment rate is stable at around 7.5%. Eurozone growth is set to remain weak for the next few quarters and unemployment is likely to stabilise at this level. This context will continue to require an accommodative monetary policy. The bond markets will benefit from these conditions.
