Managers' Comments

The Managers’ Comments are taken from the Management Report of Portfolio Performance (Operating Results), as at June 30, 2020.

The FDP Cash Management Portfolio, Series A posted a net return of 1.1% for the first six-month period of 2020, versus 1.8% for 2019.

  • In the context of a global economy weakened by a pandemic, governments and central banks introduced unprecedented fiscal and monetary measures, which relieved markets and economies.
  • The Bank of Canada (BoC) has announced quantitative easing measures, purchasing government of Canada, provincial and corporate bonds.

Accordingly, the BoC cut its bank rate by 50 basis points on three occasions, lowering it from 1.75% to 0.25%.
