Management report - 1st Quarter 2021

In the first quarter of 2021, we saw a significant correction in the US Treasury bond market. The average yield on the benchmark 10-year US bond rose from 0.91% to 1.74% between 31 December 2020 and 31 March 2021. This rise in yields is explained by an improvement in prospects for economic growth. These prospects were buoyed by the adoption of the Biden administration's fiscal stimulus packages. The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan is expected to contribute to a 7% growth rate in 2021. On the health front, the vaccination campaign is being ramped up and the progress of the pandemic is slowing. Inflation is expected to increase but remain under control. At the end of February it came to 1.7%. On the monetary policy front, the Federal Reserve has indicated that it will only intervene if bond yields rise too high and financial conditions tighten significantly. The key rate is still 0.25% and is not expected to be raised until next year at the earliest. BL Bond Dollar declined by 2.33% over the quarter. It has an average yield of 0.81% for a modified duration of nearly 4.4.
