- Volatility in global government bond markets increased in September. The EurozoneI economy remained
fragile, which led the European Central Bank to cut interest rates and announce an asset-purchase programme.
Conversely, U.S. growth data held up relatively well, driving broad U.S.-dollar strength.
- In Canada, yields broadly tracked those on comparable-duration U.S. Treasuries, while the central bank
maintained its dovish outlook. Australian yields followed suit, but consumer confidence and business conditions
softened. New Zealand bonds outperformed on dovish forecasts by the central bank.
- Emerging market debt suffered negative returns across all segments. Currencies fell significantly, led by the
Brazilian real and Russian rouble, owing to election concerns and geopolitical issues, respectively. High yield
outperformed investment-grade assets, led by Argentina, Ghana, Honduras and Belarus, while Venezuela had the
weakest returns. Local currency debt significantly underperformed its hard currency counterparts, but Thailand
and Chile were most resilient.
- The U.S. dollar appreciated against all G-10J currencies, but the sterling and Canadian dollar fell the least, while
the New Zealand and Australian dollar had the steepest declines.
