7 Investment Commentary March 31, 2015 On March 31, 2015 the Investment Committee adjusted the weightings within the Equity. The Committee, in consultation with its advisor continues to designate 2 as an appropriate weighting for international equities in the Equity. Within that weighting for international stocks, the allocation to developed markets was increased to 2 from 1 of the Equity while the allocation to emerging markets was reduced from 1 to of the Equity. This change is designed to bring the weightings of the developed and emerging markets into line with their weightings relative to one another in the MSCI All Country World Index. The surprise factors of 2014 continued their run into the first quarter of 2015 as U.S. Treasury yields and the price of oil declined during the quarter while the trade weighted value of the dollar increased against other major currencies as depicted in the chart below. The one trend that did reverse was the bond market s expectations for inflation over the next five years. The bond market s estimate of inflation (as measured by the Consumer Price Index) over the next five years accelerated from 1.27% in December 31 st to 1.51% on March 31 st even as the price of oil continued to fall and economic data pointed to weakness in the first quarter. This change in inflation expectations, should it continue, could be the catalyst that enables the Federal Reserve to increase short term interest rates sometime this year and begin the process of normalizing monetary policy in the United States. In the first quarter the Equity had a total return of %. Unlike last year, the Equity was led by the overseas developed markets as the FTSE Developed s ex North America stock index rebounded 5.03%. Small company stocks also outperformed their larger brethren as the CRSP Small Cap Index gained 4.79% compared with a return of.9 for the S&P 500. The Intermediate-Term Fixed Income gained % during the quarter as bond yields continued their decline. Investors view the ten year U.S. Treasury note as a benchmark for the overall bond market. The ten year Treasury note s yield-to-maturity declined from 2.17% at the end of the year to 1.94% at the end of the first quarter. It should be noted that the yield of 1.94% on March 31 st was a rebound from 1.68% at the end of January. The advent of quantitative easing (sovereign bond purchases) by the European Central Bank has been an intervening variable in the U.S. bond market as it has driven yields on European sovereign bonds to very low levels. Yields on ten year bonds are below 0.1 in Germany while Italy and Spain are below 1.5. Switzerland has even issued ten year bonds with negative yields. The Short-Term Fixed Income gained 1.0 during the quarter. The bonds held by the funds in this benefited from the lower yields referenced above, but on a much smaller scale due to the shorter average maturity of the. The primary issue facing the capital markets is the timing of the Federal Reserve s plans to increase short-term interest rates. The corollary issue is the impact that decision will have on the economy as well as the capital markets around the world. Stated another way, can the Federal Reserve begin normalizing U.S. monetary policy while other central banks are still fully engaged in quantitative easing? As investors sail into uncharted waters the Community Foundation s Investment s remain broadly diversified to deliver market-based investment performance in a low-cost and thoughtful manner.
