Aberdeen Insights: Views from the Front Lines of Asia

Asian local currency bonds performed well in April, supported by Japan’s bold quantitative easing, a softening growth outlook and
receding inflationary pressures.
While manufacturing activity improved marginally in March, exports remained sluggish in most countries. For the first quarter, China’s
gross domestic product (GDP) was relatively disappointing, whereas Korea’s economy expanded at its fastest pace in two years.
Thailand lifted its 2013 growth forecast to 5.3% to reflect the anticipated boost from stimulus measures.
As core inflation fell across most of the region, central banks kept monetary policy unchanged, although Philippine policymakers cut
the special deposit account (SDA) rate by 50 basis points (bps) to 2%.
Higher-yielding bond markets in India and Indonesia outperformed on the back of robust inflows, while Korea posted more modest
gains. Most Asian currencies strengthened against the U.S. dollar, led by the Malaysian ringgit and the Taiwan dollar which benefited
the most from fund inflows. The Thai baht lagged the overall market amid speculation of capital controls.
Australian bond yields fell steadily in April, with three-year yields closing 29 bps lower at 2.53%. In our view, the markets factored in
expectations of cuts to the cash rate, as economic data weakened. The credit markets narrowly outperformed Commonwealth bonds.
