Outlook

USD rates are expected to decrease in 2024. However, the KES depreciation against the USD implies significant upside for KES investments into USD assets. We expect the fund to register strong performance in 2024 on the back of high yielding USD assets in the current environment.

GDP

Global growth projections for 2024 are muted, as countries grapple with higher interest rates, shrinking fiscal flexibility, and trade fragmentation. Ongoing geopolitical conflicts and tensions are likely to depress growth further, while adding to inflationary pressures that are beyond the control of central banks. On the positive, sustained disinflation should allow the Fed to consider reducing policy rates as early as 2Q24, which should mitigate head-winds to growth and invigorate capital expenditures in anticipation of a cyclical economic rebound.

Inflation

In Dec 2023, US inflation rose 3.4% on an annual basis in Decem-ber, above the 3.2% increase economists were expecting. The inflation rate is still above the 2% policy target hence Fed rate cuts are only likely come in once inflation is within target.

Exchange Rates

In 2023, the KES depreciated 26.8% against the USD. The steep depreciation is mostly attributable to increased dollar demand amid low USD liquidity. We expect continued depreciation on the back of a weak macro backdrop in Kenya.

Interest Rates

The performance of global bond markets in 2023 was volatile as investors weighed the possibility of central banks pushing out the timing of interest rate cuts because divergent inflation readings.
