Manager's Monthly Report

June 2014

Market Review

Asian equities continued to benefit from the assurance of loose monetary policy in June, but gains were pared by still patchy economic data and escalating violence in Iraq. The Thai market did well as the nationwide curfew was lifted, while the military rulers began approving stalled investment and infrastructure projects. Indonesia lagged as polls showed market-friendly presidential nominee Jokowi losing ground to his rival Prabowo ahead of the election.<./p>

Portfolio Review

There were no major portfolio changes in June.

In portfolio-related news, Standard Chartered warned that first-half income could decline, while operating profits could fall by 20% due to higher loan impairments. Nevertheless, we believe the bank is still well positioned to benefit from long-term growth in emerging markets. Separately, it continued to streamline its struggling Korean operations by selling Standard Chartered Savings Bank and Standard Chartered Capital Korea to J Trust.

In Malaysia, Public Bank’s 1-for-10 rights issue was approved at its extraordinary general meeting. Priced at an attractive discount, it is expected to see good demand, allowing the lender to strengthen its capital base.

Australia’s QBE Insurance merged its Asia Pacific and Latin American units into a new emerging markets division to capture growth opportunities in these regions. In Singapore, Keppel Corp.'s order book continued to grow as it signed a US$735 million deal to perform the world’s first conversion of a liquefied natural gas carrier into a floating liquefaction vessel. Meanwhile, SingTel is beefing up its capabilities in digital advertising through the purchase of US-based companies Adconion and Kontera. This is in line with its strategic shift into the digital life segment.
