Market Review

  • Emerging markets rose in March, benefiting from the decline in U.S. 10-year real yields and the U.S. dollar in the second half of the month.

  • Asian markets posted the strongest gains for the month, benefiting from the appreciation of Chinese markets in the wake of encouraging macroeconomic indicators : The Caixin/S&P Global Services PMI came in at 57.8 for the month of March, up from 55.0 in February, its third month of growth after the lifting of pandemic restrictions.

  • Chinese internet names posted the strongest gains following the announcement by internet giant Alibaba to split its main business segments into six units, a move welcomed by market, as it will allow the company's different businesses to have access to independent funding, making the company more transparent and efficient.

  • In Latin American, Brazil was down, while Mexico rose once again, benefiting from the recovery of economic activity in the wake of "nearshoring”.
