    A $453 Billion Bond Manager Is Shifting Bets From India to China

    (Bloomberg) -- Western Asset Management Co. is reducing its Indian government bond holdings as tensions around a new citizenship law and the Kashmir region cloud the economic outlook.The $453 billion investor, an affiliate of Legg Mason Inc., is diverting some of its funds into longer-dated Malaysian and Chinese debt, according to Desmond Soon, head of investment management for Asia ex-Japan. It has an overweight position in India bonds.The initial market euphoria from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s re-election last year is wearing thin as economic growth stutters and a policy making it harder for Muslim migrants to get citizenship stirs protests. Foreign holdings of Indian sovereign debt have dropped to near a three-month low.“It certainly distracts Prime Minister Modi’s government from making the necessary economic policy and reform to focus on the economy,” Soon, a 30-year investment veteran, said in Singapore. “We are in the process of reducing India somewhat.”Angry protests have erupted in many Indian states, forcing the government to send in hundreds of soldiers to aid local police. Modi also stoked tension in Kashmir, the nation’s only Muslim-majority state, when he ended seven decades of autonomy for the area in 2019.The changes, part of the election promises made by Modi’s Hindu nationalist government, have created mistrust among Muslims, who form about 14% of the population.Read More: Microsoft CEO Nadella Calls India’s Citizenship Limits ‘Sad’Despite five interest-rate cuts last year to shore up growth, yields on 10-year India bonds remain some of the highest in Asia at 6.64%.A recent rally in the market, spurred by bond purchases from the Reserve Bank of India, has stalled as inflation surges to a five-year high. Stagflation looms as the economy grinds toward its slowest expansion in more than a decade.The central bank will probably refrain from cutting interest rates in the coming months, and that along with the deteriorating macro environment, is probably why global funds are turning away from Indian bonds, said Ek Pon Tay, a portfolio manager for emerging-market fixed-income at BNP Paribas Asset Management.“An expected increase in the fiscal deficit and economic growth not yet rebounding from below-trend levels mean bond yields will be under further upward pressure,” Tay said.Malaysia SwitchWestern Asset is buying Malaysian debt as the oil exporter will benefit medium term from higher energy prices, Soon said.Gobal investors may also pour another $150 billion to $200 billion into Chinese bonds as the debt is gradually included in global benchmarks, he said.Other Investment ViewsDollar bond sales from companies in Asia, excluding Japan, to exceed last year’s issuance in 2020 -- driven by Chinese companies seeking debt to growFund is overweight Indonesian and Philippines local currency bondsAsian countries appear poised to embark on fiscal easing, including Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan(Updates with BNP comments in ninth paragraph)\--With assistance from Chester Yung and Kartik Goyal.To contact the reporters on this story: Ruth Carson in Singapore at rliew6@bloomberg.net;Ameya Karve in Singapore at akarve@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tan Hwee Ann at hatan@bloomberg.net, Cormac MullenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

The Leamington, Ont.-based cannabis company said Tuesday that it now expects net revenue for its 2020 financial year to be between $575 million and $625 million. It had previously predicted that total would be between $650 million and $700 million. Aphria also said its adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amoritization will now amount to between $35 million and $42 million, rather than between $88 million and $95 million.Encana Corp. — Shareholders in Encana Corp. have voted overwhelmingly in favour of the oil and gas company moving its headquarters to Denver from Calgary and changing its name to Ovintiv Inc. CEO Doug Suttles says the 90 per cent vote in favour of the resolution shows clear support for the long-standing Canadian company's decision to move its corporate home south of the border, despite public criticism from Encana founder Gwyn Morgan and shareholder Letko, Brosseau & Associates Inc. Encana announced the changes in October as part of a reorganization that includes a one-for-five share consolidation, also approved by shareholders on Tuesday.Endeavour Mining Corp. (TSX:EDV). Up $1.30 or 5.5 per cent to $24.96. Endeavour Mining Corp. is walking away from its attempt to buy Centamin PLC.

The proposal valued Centamin at roughly $2.5 billion at the time. However, Endeavour now says it does not plan to make a firm offer and therefore the merger discussions have been terminated.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 14, 2020.The Canadian Press
