Commentary

Performance as at Q1 2024 - In the US, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) voted to maintain rates at 5.25-5.50% and left the statement little changed. The updated median dot projections showed three rate cuts in each of 2024, 2025, and 2026. The longer-run dot edged up to 2.6%. The future projections show a committee that is willing to tolerate higher inflation and still cut rates. On the balance sheet, there was no definitive guidance, but the committee noted that a decision would be made “fairly soon” which could mean a May announcement and June implementation. Total nonfarm payrolls showed that 275K were added in February, supported by yet another strong showing in government hiring of 52K. Even with downward revisions to prior months, the 3m and 6m averages ended at 265K and 231K respectively, well above the trend rate. As expected, the European Central Bank (ECB) kept the deposit, refinancing operations and marginal lending facility rates at 4.0%, 4.5% and 4.75% respectively, for the fourth time in a row. Its updated inflation forecasts predict lower than previously expected headline and core inflation this year and next, with headline inflation reaching 2.0% in 2025 and core inflation reaching 2.0% in 2026. GDP growth this year is now forecast at 0.6%. The accompanying press statement noted a declining trend in inflation, which President Lagarde also highlighted during the press conference. The Bank of England also met during the month, and as expected, decided to keep the Bank Rate at 5.25%. Eight out of the nine members voted to maintain the current rate, while one member voted for a rate reduction. Lastly, after a 17 year wait the Bank of Japan decided to end its negative interest rate policy (NIRP) at the 19 March meeting, hiking to a range of 0.0 to 0.1% on its uncollateralized policy rate.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Please note the performance figures for this fund's benchmark are not available until around week 3 after a quarter end. So the figures shown until then might be for the previous quarter.

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

Source of portfolio data: Broadridge. Source of performance data: FE fundinfo. We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with gross income reinvested. The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.

This factsheet is intended for the advisers of occupational pension schemes using Prudential group pension contracts and Prudential grouped personal pensions and Stakeholder pension contracts. its purpose is to provide an insight into how investment markets and funds have performed over the period and is provided for information only. You should refer to your client's scheme documentation (e.g. Fund Guide) for fund availability, investment strategy, any scheme information and charges. Every care has been taken in populating this output, however it must be appreciated that neither Broadridge, Prudential nor their sources guarantee the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of this infomation or make any warranties regarding results from its usage.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Please note the performance figures for this fund's benchmark are not available until around week 3 after a quarter end. So the figures shown until then might be for the previous quarter.

Some funds may invest in ‘underlying’ funds or other investment vehicles. The performance of our fund, compared to what it’s invested in won’t be exactly the same. That can be due to additional charges, cash management (needed to help people to enter and leave our fund when they want), tax and the timing of investments (this is known as a fund’s dealing cycle, it varies between managers and can be several days).

Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now.

Investments Long Term

This factsheet is intended for the advisers of occupational pension schemes using Prudential group pension contracts and Prudential grouped personal pensions and Stakeholder pension contracts. its purpose is to provide an insight into how investment markets and funds have performed over the period and is provided for information only. You should refer to your client's scheme documentation (e.g. Fund Guide) for fund availability, investment strategy, any scheme information and charges.

These risk ratings have been developed by Prudential to help provide an indication of a fund’s potential level of risk and reward based on the type of assets which may be held by the fund. Other companies may use different descriptions and as such these risk ratings should not be considered as generic across the fund management industry.

We regularly review our fund risk ratings, so they may change in the future. If, in our view, there is a material change in the fund's level of risk, for example due to a significant change to the assets held by the fund or in the way the fund is managed, we will provide information on the new risk rating. We recommend that you make sure you understand the risk rating of any fund before you invest.

  • Higher Risk
  • Medium to Higher Risk
  • Medium Risk
  • Lower to Medium Risk
  • Lower Risk
  • Minimal Risk

Medium Risk

These funds may invest in multi-asset strategies with a higher weighting in equities (or with significant derivative use), while funds investing mainly in property, high yield or government bonds (such as UK Gilts) are also in this category.

The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with gross income reinvested. The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.
