Fund Commentary

Global equities posted negative returns over the first quarter as the COVID-19 outbreak in China and its spread to other countries weighed on global economic prospects. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a pandemic. Authorities across the world announced large-scale quarantines, social distancing and travel restrictions to curtail the virus’ spread. The US Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, Bank of England, People’s Bank of China, Bank of Japan and a number of other central banks cut interest rates or provided liquidity support through balance sheet expansions or by relaxing bank capital requirements. Governments in major economies have pledged to do “whatever it takes” to provide the necessary relief and rescue measures in their respective countries. Against this global backdrop, all key markets ended lower, with European equities experiencing the most negative performance. From a sector perspective, energy companies came under significant pressure as crude oil prices fell in view of weakening global demand and a fallout in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ meeting in March.
