Fixed income strategy:
Asia has distinguished itself as a quality, standalone market worthy its own strategic asset allocation
Attractive valuations in Asian credits from a relative and historical basis are emerging as credit spreads have been widened. With relatively higher economic growth in the region that supports corporate financials, and monetary policy easing from China, we believe it is an opportune time to capitalise on value opportunities from fundamentally strong issuers.
Local bonds issued by China and some South Asian governments offer relatively attractive nominal and real yields. We believe steady COVID-19 vaccine rollout and more border reopening should provide a supportive backdrop.
