The combination of higher government bond yields and an increase in geopolitical tensions in the Middle East resulted in a risk off move in October. Global equities were negative for the month in USD/AUD terms, however were higher in NZD due to exchange rate impacts (+0.2%). Utilities, information technology and consumer staples outperformed whilst consumer discretionary, industrials and energy underperformed. US equities outperformed (+0.9%) with macroeconomic data highlighting resilience within the economy despite a higher for-longer rate environment. Further, US treasury bonds fell due to fears of a forecast increase in treasury issuance. European equities underperformed as macroeconomic data disappointed (-0.6%), and central banks reinforced a higher-for-longer scenario.
Asian equities underperformed (-0.9%). Chinese equities were lower (-0.6%) despite positive economic data and more fiscal support. Continued property sector overhang in addition to the tighter US restrictions on firms exporting AI chips to China weighed on investor sentiment. Japanese equities underperformed globally and regionally (-1.4%) as the Bank of Japan tightened monetary policy in line with increasing inflationary data.
Elsewhere, Brent Crude (-8.3% in USD) was volatile but ended lower, Gold (+7.3%) was higher benefiting from a flight to safety, whilst the US Dollar (+0.5%) saw a marginal appreciation.

5 As a percentage of the net asset value of the Fund per annum (Fee rate includes GST). 6 The Performance Fee will be calculated daily in respect of a semi-annual performance period ending on 30 June and 31 December each year (or the immediately preceding Business Day if not a Business Day) (each a Performance Period). The performance fee above has a ‘high water mark’. This means it is calculated on a cumulative basis relative to the Benchmark Index so that any performance under the Benchmark Index in a particular period must first be recovered in following periods before performance fees are paid. 7 When you enter or leave a Fund, any buy or sell spreads applicable at that time will be a cost to you. The buy spread is added to the Unit price on entry to the Fund, and the sell spread is deducted from the Unit price on exit from the Fund. The buy/sell spreads belong to the Fund and the purpose of buy/sell spreads is to make sure that any transaction costs incurred as a result of an investor entering or leaving the Fund are borne by that investor, and not by other investors in the Fund. There is no GST charged on buy/sell spreads.
