Management report - 2nd Quarter 2017

Emerging markets rallied further on both the local-currency and dollar-denominated markets. Despite some very tough individual situations, such as crises in Venezuela and Brazil, emerging markets in general continued to be driven by the global economic recovery. On the quarter, spreads on the JPMorgan EMBI Global Diversified index were stable at almost 310 basis points. The index nonetheless gained a little more than 2% (in dollars) during the period. On the local-currency market, the JPMorgan GBI EM Broad index turned in an equivalent performance (also in dollar). One noteworthy event was the appreciation in the euro to such an extent that it led to a loss on the dollar of almost 7% just from April to June. Generally speaking, emerging markets will continue to do well. Both the IMF and the ECB recently raised their growth outlooks. Two countries are still going through a major political crisis - Brazil and Venezuela. In Brazil's case, the markets have revised their expectations on reforms promised by President Temer. The coming direction of euro zone monetary policy will have an impact on the currency and, hence, on our investments in currencies other than the euro.
