    Market outlook and how it impacts the fund

    • We remain positive on Asian high yield market. Risk sentiment has weakened compared to the start of the year, but the strong global growth backdrop remains intact.

    • The US gradually raised interest rates, suggesting that we are further into an expansionary phase of the market cycle. The impact of rising rates on Asian high yield bonds is limited given their short duration position.

    • Concerns over a global trade war are likely to lead to continued volatility. Our base case remains that the US and China will eventually resolve their differences. Nonetheless, the recent volatility has made valuations more attractive over a medium-term horizon.
