Standard Bank Namibia Money Market Fund - 18

2018/12/18 00:00:00
Fund review
The Stanlib Namibia Money Market Fund size, closed off lower from N$ 976mil in the second quarter of 2018, to N$ 930mil at the end of the third quarter of 2018. As at the end of the quarter, money market rates closed lower, with 12 months Jibar linked notes trading around 103bps over 3month Jibar ,12 months NCD’s at 8.15% and 12 months Fixed Deposits at 8.25%. The fund is currently overweight Jibar linked instruments, with the rest of the holdings split across FD’s, NCD’s & TB’s. The current fund attributions matrix are as a result of the higher annualized returns generated by the Jibar linked notes relative to the rest of the assets in the fund.
Market overview
During the quarter under review, the Bank of Namibia left the Repo rate unchanged at 6.75% as part of their decisions to support domestic growth. The market remained cash flush from the beginning of the quarter, with a total market liquidity of around N$4 bn cash by the end of the quarter. The high liquidity volumes, resulted in money market rates moving lower as banks have no incentive to price higher in the short term up to 12months. The Namibian inflation rate has since been moved slightly higher to average 4.1% from 4%, due to higher oil prices and the domestic currency’s response to the weakness in the Rand movements. Looking ahead
While the market expects rates to remain unchanged for the remainder of year, the increased levels of trade protectionism as well as the impact of monetary policy normalisation in developed markets, remain key drivers to the global outlook. The monetary decisions in SA will continue to have an impact on Namibia rates, while local liquidity needs will continue to drive the premiums offered for local assets.
