The political and economic uncertainties arising from Brexit, the US Election and sluggish global economic growth continue to suppress policy rates across the globe.  In the United States, Citi analysts have pushed back the expected timing of the next Fed rate hike to December 2016, which in turn is creating a more favorable environment for Emerging Market and Asian assets.  While economic and earnings fundamentals have not markedly improved in Asia, abating headwinds are easing the path ahead.
