Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

October 2014

  • Latin American equities fell in September, owing to concerns about a sooner-than-expected U.S. interest rate hike and weak Chinese industrial activity.
  • Brazil’s stock market continued to be steered by the upcoming presidential elections: investor sentiment soured after polls showed that incumbent Dilma Rousseff regained her lead from her opponent, Marina Silva. After the month-end, the pro-business candidate Aecio Neves unexpectedly rode a late surge of support to gain over 33% of the votes in the first round of polling, leaving Marina Silva in distant third. Neves will face Rousseff in the October 26 run-off.
  • In its 2015 budget, the Chilean government outlined plans to support growth by increasing its spending on infrastructure and education, while the central bank reduced the benchmark rate to 3.25% to counter moderating domestic consumption.
