Hong Kong, 29 June 2016 – If there were any doubts 2016 is the year of volatility, the UK’s surprise vote to exit the European Union put that to bed. Global and Asian bond funds fared better than equities on this latest risk event, building on their 2016 outperformance among MPF funds with returns of 4.71% and 4.33% year-to-date1, respectively. The UK vote result has been negative for most funds, though MPF returns as a whole posted an average net decline 2.23%1. Renewed volatility has not helped equity markets across Greater China, Japan and Korea, pushing all three to the bottom of the MPF performance ladder, though market conditions suggest risk appetite for Asian equities may return in the second half of 2016.
