Manager's Commentary
Given the slowdown in economic activities (as reflected by the latest 3Q14 GDP growth), as well as a
moderating CPI, it was no surprise that BNM maintained the OPR at 3.25% in the final meeting of
2014. Consensus expectations of the next interest rate hike have now been pushed further towards
the end of 2015.
While BNM has continued to guide for inflation to remain above its long-term average for the next one
year, the recent plunge in crude oil prices to the current level of USD60 – USD70 per barrel may have
the potential to reduce the impact to inflation from the implementation of GST next April. Already,
RON 95 price has been revised downwards by 4 sen recently and is expected to drop further if crude
oil prices sustain at this level.
Nevertheless, the drop in crude oil prices is a double edged sword as a substantial part of the
Government’s revenue is derived from Energy related revenue. Hence, while low oil prices would be
favorable to the country's economy, as it brings down the costs to businesses and consumers as well
as less inflationary, per BNM Governor, a further drop beyond a certain threshold would impact
government revenue and hence development expenditure negatively.
The Fund remained primarily invested in good quality Islamic issuance especially short term bonds
and commercial papers to lower the overall risk of the Fund. The Fund's exposure to double-A papers
increased to 39.35% while liquidity stood at 37.50%.
For the month, we have participated into Islamic commercial papers and high yield Islamic short term
bonds to improve the yield of the portfolio.
