Manager's Commentary

What happened in the markets that you invest in?

June was generally another positive month for international fixed interest investors.

In our view, the numbers don’t lie; inflation has fallen and is likely to fall further. Over the last couple of months investors have been well rewarded by positioning their portfolios for an easing in global monetary policy. 

How did your portfolio perform?

Summer Global Fixed Interest delivered a return net of fees and before tax of 0.85% for the month of June and for the 12 months to the end of June Summer Global Fixed Interest delivered a return net of fees and before tax of 4.72%.

Apart from an immaterial amount of directly held New Zealand dollar cash (typically 1% of the fund’s value) Summer Global Fixed Interest is fully invested in international fixed interest through its holdings of units in the Hunter Global Fixed Interest Fund (a multi-rate PIE fund), which is hedged to the New Zealand dollar. PIMCO Australia Pty (PIMCO) is the investment manager.

What do we think is going to happen in the next few months?

PIMCO are well set, in our opinion, to play a long game anticipating a “soft recession” which in general should be a good outcome for high-quality bond portfolios.

We estimate the fund’s gross yield-to-maturity, calculated as the weighted-average gross yield of all securities in the portfolio, to be around 5.30%. The fund’s duration, a measure of how sensitive the portfolio is to a given change in global wholesale interest rates, is close to 5.3 years and the fund has a weighted-average portfolio credit quality of AA-. The weighted-average portfolio credit quality is calculated by PIMCO and is the weighted-average credit rating of each security within the portfolio. When a security is not externally rated PIMCO will assign a credit rating.
