Commentary

Performance as at Q1 2024 - The first quarter of 2024 begun the year with a degree of optimism, with major asset classes enjoying largely positive returns. Global equities made strong gains, supported by positive corporate earnings expectations, ongoing momentum in Artificial Intelligence and the view that many of the major central banks have reached the end of their tightening cycles. There was more dispersion in performance seen across fixed income assets. Developed market equities outperformed their emerging market counterparts delivering 10.2% and 4.6% respectively and value stocks outperformed their growth counterparts. Corporate bond markets outperformed government treasuries. Major central banks indicated signs of monetary policy easing with the Bank of England (BoE), European Central Bank (ECB) and Federal Reserve (Fed) keeping interest rates steady over the quarter. Within developed equity markets, Japan (+18.8%), the US (+10.4%) and Europe ex-UK (+9.7%) were the strongest performers. Japanese equities experienced exceptional performance, underpinned by the return of inflationary pressures coupled with robust earnings and corporate reforms. The Bank of Japan ended its negative interest rate stance in March and hiked rates for the first time since 2007, having judged that the “achievement of 2% inflation is in sight”. This demonstrated the Bank of Japan’s confidence in the economic development of the country. In the US, gains were supported by strong corporate earnings and the ongoing hope that the Fed would cut rates later this year. In particular, the strongest performers were Telecoms, IT and Financials. The Fed left policy rates unchanged over the quarter and while investors were optimistic about rate cuts at the beginning of the quarter, the Fed tempered its dovish tone and cautioned about the risks of easing too quickly. This led to markets pricing in only three rate cuts this year, in line with the Fed’s projections. It was a similar story in Europe, with equities also making strong gains. Equities benefitted from the AI-fuelled rally and expectations that interest rates have peaked in the region. In the UK, equities gains were more muted, up by 4.1%. Alongside most other central banks, the Bank of England kept the official bank rate unchanged over the period as expected. Headline inflation dipped, however the UK slipped into technical recession as the economy contracted 0.3% during Q4 2023, recording two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth.

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.

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).

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.

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).

This factsheet is for information purposes only. If there is information or terminology included that you would like to discuss, then please contact an adviser. Investors should refer to their policy documentation and supporting brochures for fund availability, investment strategy, any product 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.

You should also consider discussing your decision and the appropriateness of a fund's risk rating with an adviser.

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 investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
