    Malaysia Manufacturing Sector Weakens Further In November - Nikkei



    The manufacturing sector in Malaysia continued to contract in November and at an accelerated pace, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Tuesday with a PMI score of 47.0. That's down from 48.1 in October, and it slides further beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction. Among the individual components, production contracted at the sharpest rate in more than three years. New orders declined at a record pace, as did buying activity.

    Australia GDP Expands 2.5% On Year In Q3



    Australia's gross domestic product gained 2.5 percent on year in the third quarter of 2015, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Wednesday. That beat forecasts for an increase of 2.4 percent and accelerated from the 2.0 percent gain in the second quarter. On an annualized quarterly basis, GDP gained 0.9 percent - also topping expectations for an increase of 0.8 percent and up from the 0.2 percent gain in the three months prior. The terms of trade slipped a seasonally adjusted 2.4 percent on quarter in Q3. The major contributions to economic growth this quarter came from exports, with net exports contributing 1.5 percentage points to GDP growth. The growth in exports is reflected by strong growth in mining activity (5.2 percent), bouncing back after the decline in the June quarter. Strength in the broader economy was also seen in household final consumption expenditure (up 0.7 percent) and new and used dwelling construction (up 2.0 percent). These positive contributions were offset by a fall in total gross fixed capital formation of 4.0 percent, driven by falls in private (-2.9 percent) and public (-9.2 percent) investment. The September quarter continues to see the decline in mining related construction, with engineering construction decreasing 7.1 percent.

    reasury yields dive as weak US data renewed woes on Fed liftoff



    Treasury yields plunged as soft manufacturing data revived questions about the possible timing of Federal Reserve's interest rate hike over the following year. According to the Institute for Supply Management, manufacturing activity slumped to 48.6 in November, from 50.1 in October. The likelihood of a Fed rate increase this month has lowered. Futures markets pointed to 75% probability of a rate hike in December. The yield premium investors get for purchasing longer-term debt slimmed at 1.25 percentage points, its narrowest in nine months. The yield on the benchmark 10-year US government note slipped to its one-month low of 2.155%, while the two-year yield fell to 0.907%, its weakest in nearly two weeks.

    Fitch: Strong Capitalisation Backs Malaysian Insurers' Profile Amid Changes



    Malaysia's insurance and takaful sector will remain stable in 2016, underpinned by the industry's solid capitalisation, Fitch Ratings says in a new report. The sound capitalisation will also support the sector's premium growth and potential underwriting volatility as economic growth decelerates. The sector's solid capitalisation is built on the robust regulatory framework and capital practices required by the Malaysian regulator. The series of regulatory reforms implemented in recent years aimed to raise the sector's competitiveness ahead of full liberalisation and economic integration with other south-east Asian economies. The industry's consolidated risk-based capital ratio was strong at 239% in 1H15, well beyond the regulatory minimum of 130%. Fitch believes stable domestic demand and low insurance penetration will continue to support the general insurance and takaful sector. This is despite the slower premium growth in 1H15 associated with lower automobile sales and private consumption, as consumers adjust to the Goods and Services Tax implemented in April 2015. The growth in investment-linked policies is likely to stay strong given the low interest rates, but we expect life insurers to increasingly tap on health-related and retirement products as the population ages and medical costs rise. High claims from the compulsory motor class will continue to pressure general insurers' profitability but this will be partly offset by healthy underwriting margins from fire and non-motor classes. We believe the deregulation of tariff rates in 2016 to have a mixed impact: motor insurers are likely to benefit from greater flexibility in pricing their risks adequately, but it could trigger competitive pricing among fire insurers and erode bottom-line profitability. Fitch expects M&A activity in the sector to pick up following a quiet 2015. This will be driven by the regulatory requirement for composites to split their life and non-life operations within five years from 2013. There are currently eight takaful and four insurance composites that have yet to split their operations. The report, "2016 Outlook: Malaysian Insurance Sector", is available on www.fitchratings.com or by clicking on the link in this media release.
