Australian Unity Pro-D Investment Funds – Monthly Fund Updates for February 2021Posted: March 19, 2021
Fixed interest markets experienced the weakest monthly return in nearly 40 years, as Australian and global bond investors became concerned that central bank stimulus would lead to inflation. The Australian 10-year government bond yield rose nearly 0.8% to close the month at 1.9% p.a., leading to a 3.6% decline in the Australian Composite Bond index, and dragged listed property and infrastructure stocks lower.
Australian and global shares generally rose through the early part of February, before declining later in the month in sympathy to moves in bond yields.
Against this backdrop, the Pro-D Funds achieved positive returns for the month of February. The Fund’s returns over one year and beyond are above each fund’s inflation-relative objective.
