(Updated April 7, 2021)

Offshore Equities markets performed relatively well despite the onslaught of the Pandemic in 2020. Superior returns were realized by US and North Asian Stock markets that carried the performance of our Feeder Funds. The US incurred the largest number of Covid cases, and also experienced a difficult political campaign period and transitioning, but its S&P 500 Index still generated decent double-digit returns. China also was able to provide solid Equity returns as it regenerated its economy faster providing anchor support to some Asean neighbors that benefitted from the supply chain relocation on trade. These countries managed the Covid pandemic more effectively and efficiently that despite new waves of virus spread, they were able to effect the correct policies, across medical, fiscal and monetary aspects, which allowed them to re-open their economies earlier.

This exceeds some economists’ expectations and it’s a number that will keep improving as vaccine production ramps up. Developed Markets is now on track to reach 72% vaccine coverage of the population with a significant acceleration in the UK while President Biden doubling the US target to 200mn doses for his first 100 days in office. The EU as a whole improved as well, but Germany, France, Poland and the Czech Republic declined. On the other hand, there are still about 40 to 50 economies that need to start vaccinating. We observe that in countries with over 20% of the total population vaccinated (i.e. UK, US, Israel, UAE), both infection and mortality were under control regardless of vaccine type, allowing a return to normalcy. While Israel provides a large sample of vaccination from Pfizer-BioNTech, UAE has distinguished itself with large vaccinations of Sinovac and later expanded to included other vaccines such as Russia’s Sputnik, Pfizer-BioNTech, and AstraZeneca. UAE has administered 73 doses per 100 people (vs US, UK, Israel: 36, 44, 112) and daily cases of infections/deaths are down ~2,000-3,000/~5 to 20, respectively. This early date suggests that vaccination provides protection, allows re-opening, and perhaps lowers infection rate, regardless of the vaccine type.
