Fixed interest roundtable Q&A: where next for bond markets?

Video

15 July 2015

Invesco Perpetual Fixed Interest team

In this live roundtable with fund managers from our Fixed Interest team, they discussed key issues including whether the Greek debt crisis matters for bond markets and the current macroeconomic backdrop.

Market commentary

European equity markets rebounded in Q4 2015 following the global growth scare of Q3. The euro-area economy showed resilience in the face of slowing emerging markets. Eurozone macro indicators such as money supply growth indices, Purchasing Managers Indices, and credit growth in the eurozone continued to show good signs of health, underpinning the region’s economic recovery and accelerating activity momentum. Unemployment continued to fall gradually, reaching 10.5% at the end of November (latest available figure at time of writing), down from 11.2% at the start of the year. Moreover, the index of economic confidence, measured by the European commission in Brussels, advanced in Q4 to its strongest level since May 2011. While the euro-area macro backdrop continued to improve, inflation remained subdued. In response, the European Central Bank (ECB) announced additional stimulus measures, extending the length of its asset purchase programme from September 2016 to March 2017, or beyond if necessary, but did not increase the size of monthly purchases. The ECB also cut its deposit rate by 10 basis points, to reach -0.30%. During the quarter, we slightly reduced exposure to the financials sector; holdings in a Nordic bank were sold as valuations became much fuller in our opinion. Meanwhile, we added exposure to the healthcare sector, introducing a new position in a Swiss pharmaceutical company, encouraged by its long-term earnings prospects. As at the end of December, financials remained the largest overweight sector relative to the MSCI Europe Index benchmark, and consumer staples the biggest underweight sector.
