FUND MANAGER’S COMMENTARY Chinese equity markets fell in April with the Dow Jones Shariah A-share 100 index declining 11.31% in USD terms during the month. Markets tumbled as China’s zero-Covid lockdowns and its impact to China’s growth were digested by investors . Global inflationary pressures continued as the cost of the Russia-Ukraine war dragged on. Meanwhile, a more hawkish US Federal Reserve sent the US Dollar higher and put further pressure on emerging market equities. In China, Q1 GDP came in ahead of expectations at 4.8% growth year-over-year with manufacturing and fixed asset investments ahead of expectations. However, there was little to cheer for as March macroeconomic data had begun to show weakness with industrial production, retail sales and labor market employment all declining vs a month ago. The cost of China’s stringent Covid-19 induced lockdowns were putting a strain on the economy. The government upped its rhetoric to support its 2022 GDP growth target of 5.5%, with focuses on infrastructure and consumer demand while also vowing to support platform economies. The news sent shares of internet companies higher, but investor scepticism remained on government measures to support growth after a brutal crackdown on the internet companies in the past year. The mainland Shanghai Shenzhen 300 Composite fell 4.89% during the month. During the month, the Fund fell 8.60%, outperforming the benchmark which fell 8.76%. Key contributor was cash allocation.
