Why You Should Consider Allocating to An Asian Bond ETF
We believe that investors in Asian bonds are uniquely positioned for potential growth.
China’s Focus on Strengthening Its Currency: We believe that all signs point to China attempting to establish a new monetary order without the US dollar.
Declining Global Valuations of Western Government Bonds: Meanwhile, in Asia, government bond markets by and large offer positive real rates.
Momentum & Following Capital: If capital leaves the US bond market for the Asian bond market, the US dollar will likely fall and the Asian currencies may rise.
Asian Currency Growth: Over the past twelve months, all Asian currencies outside of the Japanese Yen have outperformed the US dollar (Source: International Monetary Fund as of 5/5/2023).
