Manager's comments

Summer Global Fixed Interest delivered a return of 0.45% for February.

To date, we have elected to limit Summer Global Fixed Interest’s investment exposure to New Zealand bonds and New Zealand cash.

We believe this has served investors well as global interest rates and bond yields have moved higher over recent times.

However, we are preparing to add international fixed interest exposures to the portfolio and expect to do so next month, post the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy meeting scheduled for the middle week of March.
