ABSTRACT

The NDR S&P 500 Cycle Composite for 2022 shows very bumpy first months of the year, with lots of movement back and forth. Continue to manage volatility in equity and fixed income markets.

VOLATILITY 2022: INDEX & STOCK, INFLATION & EXPECTATIONS …

The cartoon above sums it up. We left 2021 expecting more volatility in 2022 in the following areas: stock indices and individual stocks, inflation and inflation expectations, and economic reports. In our Tech Talk on January 4, we asked how Wall Street would balance an overbought situation and defensive sectors outperforming in December, leading to a market pause / decline and “New Year’s inflows”. We feel like we got our answer.

During last week’s tape action, JPMorgan wrote: “Almost 40% of NASDAQ companies have seen 50% corrections from their 52 week highs.” Ned Davis Research pointed out a few weeks ago that more than 20% of S&P 500 stocks were down 20% or more from a one-year high, and Bespoke Investment Group said yesterday: “The stock Russell 3000’s average was already 27.2%. below its 52 week high.

[wce_code id=192]

I would describe the current short-term state of the national stock market as washed out, with stock market volatility both at the index level and at the stock level. In my opinion only, stock market and the volatility of fixed income securities can at least partially be managed if it is coupled with the Day Hagan / Ned Davis Study Smart Sector With Catastrophic Stop Loss Strategy and the Day Hagan / Ned Davis Research Smart Sector Fixed Income Strategy.

we identify areas—Not necessarily a specific point — of underlying support (green highlights and blue arrows) and resistance zones (Red strong points).

Figure 1: NASDAQ Composite (COMPQ). | As the NASDAQ index itself recorded a new intraday low yesterday, on a stock basis the selloff was not as extreme as it had been when measuring falling volume and falling issues on the NASDAQ—a positive non-confirmation and a sign that the NASDAQ has been won. Yesterday’s bullish reversal was a case in point. More card repair work is needed, but support has been tested and maintained after major anxiety (volatility).

Figure 2: NASDAQ 100 Index (NDX). | Trading yesterday was like trying to discern the image of the NFL playoffs last weekend – LOTS of volatility with surprising results. However, like the NFL, there was an end result. The support for the moving average has been tested and, along with a lot of angst (volatility), has been maintained.

Figure 3: S&P 500 Large Cap Daily Index (SPX). | Almost at the right time, the 100-day long-term moving average (support) held steady. I would prefer that a new period of base build occur (price sideways movement), giving many charts time to repair themselves by working on excessive selling pressure.

Figure 4: IShares Russell 2000 ETF (Small cap proxy). | I apologize for the clutter of this graph, but I think it is necessary given the importance this complex plays in many internal measurement tools. Please reach out for a more in-depth discussion. Ask a friend: “Do I see a potential bullish reverse accumulation pattern developing (blue horseshoes)? “

Chinese Government Guaranteed Bonds Will Boost MPF Yields in 2022 | Asset owners https://angil.org/chinese-government-guaranteed-bonds-will-boost-mpf-yields-in-2022-asset-owners/ Wed, 05 Jan 2022 14:09:05 +0000 https://angil.org/chinese-government-guaranteed-bonds-will-boost-mpf-yields-in-2022-asset-owners/ The Hong Kong government’s plan to ease restrictions on its $ 154 billion pension plan to invest in Chinese government bonds and political banks may help boost performance and provide diversification benefits, said experts from the city’s Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF).

The Hong Kong government’s plan to ease restrictions on its $ 154 billion pension plan to invest in Chinese government bonds and political banks may help boost performance and provide diversification benefits, said experts from the city’s Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF).

If the implementation goes well, the industry will also support the gradual opening up to other Chinese government issuers, such as state-owned enterprises and local governments, they said. Asian investor.

Hong Kong Financial Services and Treasury Office announced at the end of December that it would amend the current legislation governing MPF investments to include the central government and three bank obligations within the scope of “exempt authority”.

Christophe hui

The three banks are the Development Bank of China, the Import-Export Bank of China and the Agricultural Development Bank of China.

The amended legislation will enter into force no earlier than mid-2022, if passed by the Legislative Council.

The original plan was announced in the last political speech in October of last year and aimed to provide diversified and secure investment options and returns to the city’s retirement savers.

Bonds not issued by the “exempt authority” must have a certain level of credit rating at the individual bond level to become authorized investment subjects of MPF. “Since individual bonds issued by central government and strategic banks may not all be rated credit, the above requirement in effect has limited the MPF’s investments in these bonds,” said Christopher Hui Ching -yu, Secretary of Financial Services and Treasury.

As of September 30, 2021, the relevant investments represented only 0.27% (2.6 billion Rmb) of the total value of MPF’s assets, far less than its investments in bonds issued by commercial institutions on the continent (23 billion Rmb, or 2.41% of total MPF asset value), Hui noted in the Dec. 22 announcement.

Under the amended legislation, each MPF fund can invest up to 30% of its funds in bonds of the Chinese government or strategic banks of an issuer. It can also choose to invest all of its funds in these bonds from at least six different issues.

Paula Chan, Manulife GI

GOOD TIMING

“Due to their low correlation with other investments, Chinese government bonds and bonds of strategic banks have been able to offer diversification benefits to investors. At the end of the day, Chinese bonds are attractive because they offer opportunities to improve yield and reduce overall portfolio risk, ”said Paula Chan, senior portfolio manager for fixed income in Asia at Manulife Investment. Management.

The 10-year Chinese government bond (CGB) yield is currently around 120 basis points higher than the equivalent Hong Kong government bond and 115 basis points higher than the bond. equivalent US Treasury.

For strategic banks, yield spreads are higher. For example, the Development Bank of China Jan 27 bond yields about 2.9%.

“We agree that 2022 will continue to be a difficult environment for investors due to a number of uncertainties in the market,” Chan said. Asian investor.

READ ALSO : More A shares will be included in MPF ​​by 2023

“Given the generally weaker outlook for the Chinese economy in 2022, there are good reasons for China to pursue moderate easing of its fiscal and monetary policies to support the economy. As interest rates in China are expected to remain low, this is a positive part of the interest rate cycle to invest in Chinese bonds, as lower interest rates will help generate positive performance in China. the asset class.

“We believe the time is right to gradually increase exposure to Chinese government bonds and political banks,” she said.

Raymond Kwong,

Willis Towers Watson

According to Morningstar data, the overall return of the MPF was 0.9% in 2021. “Under the continued influence of the pandemic, we expect uncertainties in the market this year, so it is very important to continue to diversify investments, “Charlotte Chan, head of distribution, the Hong Kong workplace and personal investment at Fidelity International, said Wednesday in a note.

Noting that recent Chinese bond defaults particularly affected the private and real estate sectors, Raymond Kwong, Asia investment director at Willis Towers Watson, said CGBs and bonds of strategic banks pose low downside risk. default, and their inclusion in MPF ​​bonds and multi-asset funds is not expected to significantly increase the overall credit risk profile, although there is currency risk against the Hong Kong dollar.

“Although China has a slightly lower credit rating, it is expected to have a higher diversified economic growth potential than Hong Kong,” Kwong said.

The Hong Kong government will keep an open mind about the future inclusion of bonds issued by other government institutions on the mainland. Kwong believes that local government bonds are a large number of bonds outstanding in China. But since they are not explicitly guaranteed by the Chinese government, it may take time for the Hong Kong government to consider such inclusions, he noted.

“It should be done gradually over time. But ultimately, expanding the investment universe to include government enterprise bonds (SOE) and possibly private enterprise bonds (POE) from other dynamic sectors and economic regions of the world. Mainland China would be attractive to longer-term MPF investors, ”Manulife said. Chan.

Plan sponsors should think about their rationale and primary goals when managing investment portfolios, according to a Willis Towers Watson article.

While the paper discusses investment considerations for both defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) plans, it indicates that DB plan sponsors need to understand what their performance needs are against goals. desired. “For example, we’ve seen some plans reduce risk too quickly with a sliding trajectory of capital allocation, leaving the plan with insufficient returns needed to meet its goals,” the report said.

Sweta Vaidya, North American head of solutions design at Insight Investment in New York City, says what PD plans should do in 2022 will depend on what happened to the specific plan in 2021. “Many plans have seen their status. capitalization improve, ”she said. . “Whether a plan is open, closed or frozen, all gains made must be protected. “

Vaidya says open plans can likely continue to carry risk, as they will need growth to meet the obligations that continue to accumulate. Yet they are encouraged to take certain risks to protect the funded status.

Funding status means something different for frozen plans than it does for open plans, Vaidya explains. For example, since an open plan will continue to accrue benefits, even if it is 100% funded, it will have to carry some risk. However, the trustees of a frozen plan could likely decide that the plan only needs a 5% cushion on the full funding to protect against volatility. “It would depend on the plan sponsor’s goals as well as cash flow constraints,” she says.

Willis Towers Watson believes that investors need a broader set of yield-seeking opportunities to make portfolios more resilient to an inflationary environment. “Specifically, the uncertain political environment associated with the withdrawal of the stimulus measures, the corresponding rate hikes and the risk of inflation will require careful consideration of traditional portfolios of quality stocks and credits in these scenarios,” he said. declared the company.

For defined benefit plans, rate volatility is expected to impact both liabilities and assets, “credit and treasury bonds are expected to perform poorly due to rising inflation risk premiums and secularly low starting yields, ”said Willis Towers Watson. Plan sponsors need to understand how their existing portfolios will react to different inflation scenarios and identify new sources of income that are generally more resistant to inflation.

In 2022, says Vaidya, it will be important for DB plan sponsors to reduce risk in both fixed income and stocks.

“For growth assets, diversify out of equities because we feel they are overvalued and we expect a correction,” she said. “Plan sponsors should consider real assets, private equity, infrastructure, hedge funds or multi-asset class strategies, as well as private credit. Over the years, we have seen plan sponsors start to look to them.

On the fixed income side of the portfolio, yields are low and the risk of credit migration will add a wrinkle if defaults or downgrades affect assets differently from liabilities, Vaidya says. “It’s hard to perfectly hedge liabilities, but plan sponsors are looking at emerging market debt, structured debt, private debt, fallen angels and bank loans,” she says.

While inflation could be a good thing for corporate DB plans in the United States, as it could reduce costs, the Federal Reserve’s reaction could have an effect on how DB plans should invest. , said Vaidya.

“All other things being equal, it’s probably not a big deal,” she said. “Company DB plans generally do not offer COLA [cost of living adjustments] for retirees, and some plans hold investments in real estate and infrastructure, which will maintain asset growth. But plan sponsors fear the Fed could hike rates quickly, which would dampen returns on fixed-income portfolios. Sponsors will need to review their strategies for managing interest rate risk.

Coping with inflation

Willis Towers Watson says private assets, especially private loans with variable rate coupons, as well as real assets, which have a natural inflationary component, may become more relevant tools for plan sponsors to deal with future pressures. inflationary.

With an annualized inflation rate of over 5% through the end of May in the United States and growing fears of inflation, Morningstar Indexes has studied index returns since the start of 2021. The results suggest that value stocks, commodities, real estate, and inflation-protected treasury securities (TIPS) can act as inflation cushions.

“The past few months have offered a unique opportunity to test the performance of various asset classes in an environment of rising inflation and inflation expectations,” said Dan Lefkovitz, strategist, Morningstar Indexes, Chicago. “Notably, value stocks have responded well to economic growth and a concomitant rise in interest rates. And “real assets” such as commodities and real estate – the traditional inflation hedges – have been true to form. And, on the fixed income side, TIPS is an excellent hedge against inflation, as returns are tied to the US Consumer Price Index. [CPI]. “

“Inflation is having a devastating impact on purchasing power and the current surge in prices is a real-time reminder for investors to always remain vigilant,” said Mark Carlson, senior investment strategist – FlexShares at Northern Trust Asset Management in Chicago. “Maintaining a strategic allocation to real assets such as a wide selection of natural resources, real estate assets and infrastructure has the ability to provide long-term sustainable inflation protection for portfolios. “

Other investment considerations

Willis Towers Watson says the expansion and expansion of DB plan funding relief through the American Rescue Plan Act (APRA) has provided plan sponsors with increased flexibility in pursuing their goals, as the potential for higher contributions has been reduced. He says this could allow some plan sponsors to pursue a more aggressive investment strategy that may ignore some of the bumps in the road that might previously have triggered a cash contribution. On the other hand, plan sponsors looking to take less risk may be content with a longer time horizon on the path to achieving their goal.

But, Vaidya warns, the funding relief could make plan sponsors want to take another risk. “I can see this happening with poorly funded plans, which could reduce the likelihood of reaching fully funded status,” she says.

Willis Towers Watson also suggests that plan sponsors consider active management and higher conviction portfolios that can add value. “The volatility of each manager can be offset by a multi-manager structure, with monitoring against objectives and / or a benchmark occurring at the level of the overall or total structure,” he says.

Specifically, Willis Towers Watson says DB plan sponsors should consider expanding their high conviction investment strategies to potentially return-generating ideas, such as credit and real assets, other than stocks. And the consultant warns plan sponsors not to “lend where it’s crowded.” Instead, assess where you are lending and aim to reduce the risk of business lending, given the overlap with your equity portfolio.

Additionally, Willis Towers Watson suggests that DB plan sponsors consider incorporating investment themes into portfolios, such as environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing. “One area of ​​interest that investors are likely to incorporate into their programs is the management of climate risk and its potential impact on asset returns,” the report says. “Having a more explicit focus on climate risk throughout your portfolio could lead to alpha opportunities and / or more sustainable cash flow. “

On a related note, the consultant says diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) has never been a higher priority for the asset management industry. According to the document, the DE&I assessment “requires a holistic assessment that goes beyond the simple examination of the property. We believe that ownership is an easily achievable measure that fails to incorporate diversity between different functions within an organization. We believe that the only way to have more diversified owned investment companies is to first have diversified leadership and investment teams. By measuring diversity at these three levels, we believe that the resulting assessment helps provide a more solid and relevant picture of diversity.

Willis Towers Watson says his beliefs are supported by his research, which shows that more diverse investment teams generate higher returns on investment.

On a final note, Vaidya says there is a risk that plan sponsors will not be prepared. For some, the improvement in funded status came quickly and they adjusted their descent paths, but others don’t have descent paths in place. “Teams in general should ask themselves what their goals are and if they’re ready to move closer to their goals to take action and make changes to their portfolios,” she says.

The full list of issues Willis Towers Watson says pension plan sponsors need to consider in 2022 can be found in his article “Investing with a Goal in 2022”.

A rising tide of hot stock markets has lifted nearly all listed asset managers in 2021, but the dispersion between winners and losers is expected to increase next year, with investors favoring groups exposed to fast-growing areas such as private assets, analysts said.

“The generally buoyant stock markets and the cost savings associated with the pandemic have provided an important crutch for asset managers’ earnings. [since the] short and sharp market correction in March 2020 “at the start of the pandemic, said Tom Mills, analyst at Jefferies. “A future and potentially more prolonged decline would likely be more damaging to operating margins as many managers are now investing for growth.”

Private markets have emerged as the hottest area for trading this year for traditional asset managers, who have sought to capitalize on the popularity of these strategies among yield-seeking investors, while also raising capital. longer term which typically incur higher fees than public market strategies.

This month, London-listed Schroders bought a controlling stake in renewable energy investment firm Greencoat Capital for £ 358million.

The move follows two large alternative deals in the United States: T Rowe Price announced the $ 4.2 billion acquisition of credit manager Oak Hill Advisors in October, and the following month Franklin Templeton announced that it would buy private equity specialist Lexington Partners for $ 1.75 billion.

Ju-Hon Kwek, senior partner at McKinsey in New York, said, “There will likely be massive variability in the performance of individual asset managers next year,” said. Groups that offer exposure to private markets “are expected to experience very healthy growth and profitability in the face of strong customer demand.”

Traditional asset management groups have attempted to protect their profit margins as conditions that pushed markets to record highs are about to be reversed.

The fiscal stimulus is withdrawn after nearly two years and central banks are restraining asset purchases, just as fund houses grapple with the ongoing challenges of cost cutting and the rise of passive giants such as BlackRock and Vanguard.

Valuation multiples have improved, with a growing premium for traditional leaders and specialists in alternatives

“The old, traditional stock picking business, especially companies with a track record of indiscriminate performance, will likely continue to be in dire straits,” Kwek said. “Not only is he faced with the growth and cost pressure of the continued operation of passive managers, he is also very exposed to the performance of the stock market. These bands are stuck in the middle and that’s where you’re going to see a bit of squeeze. “

He added that another vulnerable group during a downturn are managers who have opportunistically expanded into “hot” areas such as multi-assets, risk parity or international investing in recent years. years. “There are a handful of companies that have tried and spread their investments on non-scalable subscale platforms; the result is high fixed costs and operating complexity.

Environmental, social and governance-oriented strategies continue to gain popularity with investors. In August, Goldman Sachs Asset Management bought the investment arm of Dutch insurer NN Group for around 1.6 billion euros, attracted by its strong position in this part of the market.

But Mills of Jefferies warned, “The exposure of ESG funds to growth names is quite high. “

“If the promise of rising interest rates comes true next year and we see a shift to a more value-driven market, there could be performance issues around some of these ESG funds.”

Meanwhile, managers have tried to cut costs through outsourcing. In November, JPMorgan Asset Management outsourced its middle office to the securities services division of the parent bank.

“Asset managers will continue to outsource non-core activities as it is a way to reduce costs and increase the ability to invest in areas of greater differentiation, such as China, ESG and personalization at scale, ”said George Gatch, Managing Director of JPMorgan Asset. Management. “Anything to do with managing the money or the clients I want to own. Everything I want to outsource.
