Historically, Bond investors have segmented the Global fixed income market by developed and emerging markets. A long held perception has been that developed market issuers are "rich", whilst emerging market issuers are "poor". Events of the last five years, have led many to question if this perception is valid. With bond benchmarks designed to track an investment universe, which in construction, has a structural bias towards the most indebted issuers; we believe that there is a more efficient approach. The New Capital Wealthy Nations Bond Fund has demonstrated this approach successfully over the last five years, by investing in countries and companies that have the greatest ability to pay back their debts - these tend to be countries underrepresented by indices.

2017 is set to be a year in which economic growth in developed economies will be just over 2%, although it remains to be seen if Trumponomics can deliver 4% growth for the US. We still prefer the US dollar and see oil prices unlikely to move above US$60-65 per barrel. Sector rotation will, we think, be an important theme of 2017 and it is right to stay with active rather than passive management. Uncertainty surrounding the Brexit process will remain, with sterling taking most of the strain, and with more political surprises potentially instore it would be prudent to expect the unexpected.
