The Canadian Preferred Share market was not immune from the recent volatility we have seen across asset classes. From the December lows the S&P/TSX Preferred Total Return Index rallied just under 4% to the February highs. We have continued to see outperformance from the rate reset/floating rate preferred share market as the Canadian 5-year bond yield inched higher from 1.65% to 2.10%. The recent performance of the rate-reset/floating preferred market is of no surprise to us since these securities have negative duration in a rising-rate environment.
