Tough times, easy task

Wednesday 05 June 2019

This year is already unsurprising in terms of generating a divergence in views on the global economic and market outlook. What becomes clearer though is that the AOFM’s issuance programs have materially declined, consistent with forecasts of the fiscal position. While less exciting than years of yield curve extensions, it has meant implementing an anticipated business as usual approach, and what this entails invites further clarity. At the same time, global markets continue to create conditions that have the potential to further increase the challenge for AGS in terms of its relative attractiveness to offshore investors. A lot of thought within AOFM has gone into developing a framework to track capital flows in support of its understanding of these challenges and to better identify shifts in investor preferences. Examples of this will highlight these efforts.
