Fund Manager Commentary

February Review

The Fund delivered a return of 0.35% in February and a year-to-date return of 1.16% in RMB term^.

In February, rates yields have fluctuated within tight range except the short-end, which has spiked up because of interbank strong demand for liquidity. In general, market movement was subdued in February due to lack of economic data and the upcoming "two sessions".

Onshore credit spreads diverged in February, as higher-rated credits have tightened given larger-than-expected financing support from banks, whereas lower-rated credits have met with lukewarm demand after the strong rebound in the previous months.

During the month, we have kept the Fund's short duration and core carry holdings in the 2 year bucket stable. We have tactically added modest positions in USD-denominated instruments. Our holdings are well-diversified in terms of industries and regions, with the majority in the investment grade space and underweight in the real estate and the local government financing vehicle (LGFV) sectors.


Central banks' pivot tendency continues to be the most important factor of market directions. We believe the recent upbeat EU and US economic data as well as a surprisingly smooth process of China's reopening will tilt global central bankers to tighten (or in China's case, not loosen) more and faster than actually needed. We kept our view that the overall asset valuation currently priced in indicates a somewhat too perfect scenario of global soft/no landing and paradigm shift. We continue to maintain that recessionary worries and geopolitical risks have only slightly lessened recently, and as volatility builds up, big risk events due to unknown-unknown factors have become more likely.

Chinese markets have settled down drastically from the previous strong rebound after the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. We think the rationale is that even though the policy shifts have been encouraging and the reopening of the domestic economy has been surprisingly smooth, a lack of corresponding upbeat data in the real estate sector, a still somewhat subdued level of confidence, and worrying headwind of LGFV financial problems all contributed to the recent market performance. In our opinion, the policy combination announced so far is actually very encouraging and substantive in terms of policy re-adjustment and revival of economic development for the next three to five years. The potential risk lies in the scenario that policymakers may have overestimated the short-term cyclical momentum and hence under-delivered stimuli and reforms, especially against the current global political and economic environment. We think larger-scale policy packages for the real estate sector (especially the demand side) and the LGFV sector (especially the issuer side), need to be announced and implemented quickly in order to maintain economic rejuvenation.

Renminbi's movement corroborated our view that the People's Bank of China prefers maintaining two-way fluctuations with a smooth trend based on overall economic trends, rather than sudden and substantial movements. In the short-term, Renminbi's next big move will largely depend on the hawkish Fed and European Central Bank and also their next rate hiking decisions, same as other major emerging market currencies. While in the mid-term its trend depends on the effectiveness of the domestic policy implementation after the "two sessions" as well as the direction of the international geopolitics.

Asset Allocation:
Fund allocations are a percentage of investments in asset categories (i.e. net assets attributable to unitholders) as of the end of the period. The asset category of the Fund is based on its predominant investments under normal market conditions. The Fund may shift allocations among asset classes at any time. “Others” consist of other payables and receivables (except interest receivable) as of the end of the period. A temporary negative position may be due to unsettled trade activity and operational expenses. Percentage may not equal 100% due to rounding. Top Holdings: These securities do not represent all of the securities purchased, sold or recommended for clients, and the reader should not assume that investment in the securities listed was or will be profitable. The portfolio manager for the Fund reserves the right to withhold release of information with respect to holdings that would otherwise be included in the top holdings list.
