MCB Investment Management Co. Ltd has reported excellent investment performance of the African Domestic Bond Fund (ADBF), the first multi-jurisdictional fixed income Exchange Traded Fund in Africa, launched by the company in partnership with the African Development Bank in September 2018.

ADBF aims to encourage government bond issuances in local currencies by giving investors access to this asset class through a cost-effective vehicle listed on the Official Market of the Stock Exchange of Mauritius. Since launch, ADBF has generated a total return of 18.72% in USD which includes an income return of 11.47%.

MCBIM has been investing in pan-African local and hard currency corporate and government bonds since February 2014, when it launched the MCB Africa Bond Fund, a collective investment scheme. ADBF was launched on the back of the strong investment performance and experience of managing the MCBABF.

Abhimanyu Yadav, Head of Fixed Income & Currency at MCBIM commented: “We remain confident about African fixed income going forward. The asset class should continue to exhibit low correlation with both emerging and developed markets. While African local currencies tend to be more volatile than their developed market counterparts, high yields on African bonds, strong economic growth, political and fiscal reforms and increasing capital inflows all point to the potential for diversified and attractive positive returns”.
