Market Outlook Update from Sun Life Asset Management

The outlook is good and bright!

Just recently bloggers and media guests gathered at Discovery Primea, Makati, for Sun Life Asset Management’s (SLAMCI) first Market Outlook for 2019. 

At the presscon, SLAMCI President Valerie Pama shared the team’s recent initiatives that enhanced overall client experience. One of which is the new bills payment program in partnership with the country’s top banks like BDO, BPI, and Metrobank so that clients would be able to invest anytime online, without the need to line up. This was followed by a discussion by Sun Life Chief Investments Officer Mike Enriquez about the economic updates that showed the current market status, its drivers, and notable forecasts that would be useful to anyone interested in investments.

Philippine Inflation now is at 6-month lows at 3.0% for the April, this down from the peak of 6.7% in September. It continues to be below core inflation and this tend to signal a rate cut is more likely to happen soon. Food prices has helped depress the inflationary pressures they saw in 2018 and the improving supply dynamics in the food basket that has helped temper consumer expectation on items. Their inflation view for 2019 is now 3.5% and 2020 at 2.8%.

For the dollar-peso rates, they see no changes or 53.20 by the year end and with a slight weak basis. Current account deficit is a less of a worry due to global slowdown. Domestically, election-related spending should provide some upside to GDP but consumption bounce will drive growth as inflation fades.
