As yields rebound, investors seek high credit quality and strong SRI credentials Money markets are in a good place, offering low volatility, near zero rate sensitivity and an interesting yield. Amid rising rates and high volatility, money market investments offer investors a sound temporary portfolio solution. Well-resourced teams and rigorous risk control are key to a good risk-return ratio. Active management of interest rates and credit selection increases returns and reduces volatility in net asset values. SRI should be a significant component of asset selection too. Even though money market assets are short-term, long-term SRI issues can impact returns.

US inflation (CPI) came in in line with expectations at 6.5% year on year in December. The monthly decrease in the headline CPI index amounts to 0.1%m. Energy contributed negatively (most notably gasoline), but piped gas service (+3%m) did not yet reflect the fall in prices observed on the natural gas futures markets. As a result, electricity costs increased by 1%m in December. Inflation excluding energy and food rose by 0.3%m in December and reached 5.7% year on year. Disinflation remains curbed by housing, which will take into account the already visible adjustment in rents and real estate prices (via owner-equivalent rents) several months later. The prices of medical care services, which fell significantly in October-November, are stabilizing. Used car prices keep falling despite a slight rise in prices at used car auctions in December.
