Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

July 2014

  • Chilean equities fell in July, underperforming the broader Latin American asset class largely owing to a weaker peso. Muted retail sales growth and manufacturing data also dampened investor sentiment.
  • The central bank cut its benchmark interest rate by 25 basis points to 3.75%, citing a decline in investments and slower consumption.
  • In Fund-related corporate news, lenders Santander Chile and Banco de Chile benefited from higher inflation, which widened their net interest margins. Parque Arauco posted robust revenue growth despite cost pressure from expanding its portfolio of malls. However, net income was hurt by nonoperating items. Separately, the mall operator launched a new project in Peru, Megaplaza Pisco, which is scheduled to open during the fourth quarter at a cost of US$14 million. We think that, despite its small size, the project is part of the attractive pipeline of projects highlighted by the company during its capital increase earlier this year.
  • Elsewhere, pulp and paper company CMPC closed its corrugated paper plant in Santiago, as part of its broader restructuring plan which involves selling assets and consolidating its operations in central Chile. We see this as evidence of management’s commitment to improving operational efficiency and strengthening its balance sheet amid the challenging operating environment.
  • There were no major changes to the Fund in July.
