Managers' Comments

The Managers’ Comments are taken from the Annual Management Report of Portfolio Performance (Operating Results), as at December 31, 2019.

The FDP Cash Management Portfolio, Series A posted a net return of 1.8% for 2019, versus 1.4% for 2018.

  • The slowdown in global economic growth led major central banks, including the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) and the European Central Bank (ECB) in particular, to change their stance and adopt a more accommodative monetary policy.
  • The Fed cut its key interest rate three times in 2019.
Meanwhile, the Bank of Canada held steady, and this strategic reorientation allowed the central bank — which had already increased its bank rate by 125 basis points since the beginning of the tightening cycle — to take a more patient stance.
