Portfolio Positioning as of 06/30/2015

  • As the market continues to anticipate a gradual rise in U.S. interest rates, we believe emerging markets’ interest rates will continue to exhibit lower correlation with that of those in the United States.
  • As the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) moves closer to increasing interest rates, we may seek to reduce our exposure to U.S. rates using Treasury futures.
  • Most emerging-market economies are unlikely to follow Fed rate hikes in lockstep, as many emerging-market economies have just completed significant easing cycles.
  • Short-term interest rates have become increasingly attractive for carry-trades; thus, we anticipate an increase in market participants who want to take advantage of opportunities in the short end of the curve.
  • As many emerging markets’ yield curves have steepened significantly, we will seek to take positions in anticipation of future yield-curve flattening. Specifically, we are targeting positions in countries that exhibit higher correlation to the United States, such as Mexico and Poland.
