(Bloomberg) -- A sharp rebound in global equities after the Federal Reserve’s unprecedented stimulus in March has spurred the biggest shift in Japanese fund flows in seven years.The Asian nation’s investors sold 3.91 trillion yen ($37.4 billion) of foreign shares in the six months ended Sept. 30, the latest balance-of-payments data showed, the most since 2013. They bought 11.8 trillion yen of local sovereign debt, also the biggest amount in seven years, according to figures from the Japan Securities Dealers Association.The pivot reflects the twin themes of worries over a virus-devastated world economy and the prevalence of the 60/40 stocks-bond portfolio strategy that has come into question this year. Japanese funds cashed in on their equities portfolio after reaping a 27% return as a stimulus-fueled rally propelled global equities to a record high.The selling was possibly driven by profit taking, said Kiyoshi Ishigane, the chief fund manager at Mitsubishi UFJ Kokusai Asset Management Co. in Tokyo. Despite some progress in developing vaccines for the coronavirus, “there is still concern that the pandemic won’t come to an end anytime soon and that the world economy will have a second bottom.”The biggest monthly withdrawal in stocks during the fiscal half occurred in July when banks dumped 4.85 trillion yen worth of holdings. Trust banks’ trust accounts, often seen as proxies for pension funds, were net sellers for four months through September while they stepped up purchases of overseas debt.“Pension funds probably became overweight in overseas stocks due to higher equity prices,” said Shinichiro Kadota, Tokyo-based FX strategist at Barclays Securities Japan. “So the funds sold them and shifted to foreign bonds for passive portfolio rebalancing.”Because the shift was still within foreign assets, it wasn’t a factor for yen appreciation, he said.During this period, the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI World Index both gained about 30%. The behavior by Japanese funds may foreshadow a bigger global rebalancing shift in the last weeks of the year as stocks have continued to advance.Balanced mutual funds, which control about $7 trillion of assets, may need to sell around $160 billion of stocks to revert to their targeted 60/40 allocation, according to a JPMorgan Chase & Co. report published Nov. 20 by analysts including Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou.For Japanese investors, a steeper yield curve also helped buoy demand for the nation’s sovereign bonds this year.Yield premiums that Japan’s 30-year bonds offer over 10-year notes have more than doubled to about 60 basis points from a low of 24 basis points in March on the back of record debt-funded stimulus spending.While yield curves globally have also steepened, Japanese purchases of overseas bonds almost halved to 4.19 trillion yen in the April-September period in favor of local debt.European Bonds Are Losing a Big Fan as Japan’s Purchases PlungeJapanese funds bought 7.88 trillion yen of super-long JGBs, or almost three times the purchases of intermediate notes or more than six times the investment in long bonds, according to figures from the JSDA for the six-month period.Super-long bonds refer to debt with maturities of at least 15 years, while long bonds are notes with 10-year tenors.(Adds Japanese buying of foreign bonds in 12th paragraph.)For 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.
New images reveal how the run-down former Whiteleys shopping centre in Bayswater will be reborn as a new £1 billion residential, retail, dining and hotel complex. The 109-year-old Grade II listed mall on Queensway has been closed for two years after a period of slow decline following the opening of the nearby Westfield London mall in 2008. The building - famed for its collonaded facade and rooftop cupulas - has stood on the site since 1911 when Whiteleys was one of London’s first luxury department store.
(Bloomberg) -- Oil extended gains after closing at the highest level since August on signs Covid-19 vaccines could be rolled out within weeks and as the start of the U.S. presidential transition process aided markets in general.Futures in New York rose around 1% after settling above $43 a barrel on Monday. A vaccine developed by the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca Plc that prevented a majority of people from getting the disease could be deployed as soon as next month. That follows successful trials of two other anti-virus drugs. The triggering of a formal transition process to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden buoyed stock markets and pushed down the dollar.See also: Covid Threatens Comeback After India’s Neighbors Beat First WaveVaccine optimism has oil heading for its best month since May, with investors looking past a worsening second wave that’s spurring more lockdown measures. Covid-19 is forecast to claim another 30,000 American lives by mid-December, Japan is moving toward boosting restrictions to contain the virus and Hong Kong is set to close bars and nightclubs, according to local media.The prospect of imminent drug rollouts is reshaping the oil futures curve. Global benchmark Brent’s prompt timespread flipped into backwardation -- a bullish structure where prompt contracts are more expensive than later-dated ones -- on Monday for the first time since June. A rebound in Chinese local flights is also aiding demand for jet fuel, the hardest-hit oil product.“The AstraZeneca vaccine is really a big deal as most developed markets will be able to immunize their most at-risk population to Covid-19 by spring,” said Stephen Innes, chief market strategist at Axi. “The continuing increase in infections in the U.S. and elsewhere has been the primary source of oil demand uncertainty.”The firming of the oil futures curve is a sign the market expects a rapid tightening of supplies ahead, RBC Capital Markets analysts wrote in a report. However, the forward curve for West Texas Intermediate looks overvalued with inventories still brimming at the Cushing, Oklahoma storage hub, they said.WTI’s discount to Brent widened to the most since May amid expectations for OPEC+ to extend current output cuts into next year. Some members of the group are showing signs of strain, however. Iraq is seeking upfront payments of about $2 billion in exchange for a long-term crude-supply contract, the latest sign of Baghdad’s growing desperation for cash.Saudi Arabia, meanwhile, confirmed that Houthi rebels in Yemen targeted an oil facility in northern Jeddah province, a reminder of the ever-present risk of instability in the region. The attack on Monday caused a fire at an oil tank inside a fuel-distribution center, the kingdom’s energy ministry said.For 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.

DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) DOLLY PARTON as ANGEL in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr. COURTESY OF NETFLIX © 2020 Warning: Minor spoilers ahead for Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square. The holidays came early thanks to Netflix’s Christmas special Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square, a musical that sees the singer-actress-humanitarian as a literal angel. Following the story of Fullerville — a small town whose residents are threatened to be evicted by Regina (played by Christine Baranski), a Grinch-like character who returns home after the death of her father — Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square costumes feature winter-appropriate sweaters and holiday colours and prints. The film’s costume designer Provi Fulp, who calls the musical the “Fame of Christmas movies,” wanted it to feel cosy with “a little bit of Dolly charm throughout.” “There had to be some Southern charm, because Dolly is a Southern darling, and there had to be Christmas everywhere,” she says. “We peppered colours of red and green all around and added sparkle and texture and lots of knits. And especially at the finale, I just needed a Christmas explosion, and it was so easy to do it because it was a musical and I could kind of go there.” DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) JENIFER LEWIS as MARGELINE in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr.

COURTESY OF NETFLIX © 2020 Throughout the film, Parton appears in over-the-top, all-white looks, ranging from crystal-adorned mini dresses to a button-down with statement buttons and frayed, crystal-encrusted jeans — all with matching 10-inch heels and jewellery, which notably includes crystal fingerless gloves and an oversized star-shaped ring. “She had some bling all the time. She’s the queen angel,” says Fulp. “She loves to shine and is so fabulous.” While Parton’s looks were designed by her longtime creative director Steve Summers, Fulp collaborated with him to make the costumes feel “all Dolly-inspired,” especially when it came to the character of Felicity (Jeanine Mason), a (secret) angel-in-training. DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) DOLLY PARTON as ANGEL in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr. COURTESY OF NETFLIX © 2020 “When I was doing Jeanine’s character, who eventually turns into an angel, I wanted to make sure that I had some Dolly in the looks,” says Fulp. “[Before becoming an angel,] Felicity is very preppy. I wanted her to be very J. Crew-like and just really kind of appealing and warm and fuzzy.” To hint at her being more than Regina’s assistant, Fulp added a hidden touch: “Throughout you’ll notice she wears a little bit of sparkle on her neckline, she’ll have a little bit of sparkle as she goes along, and I wanted that to be some zhuzh that she has every time you see her. When she morphed into the angel, it kind of made sense that she had a little bit of Christmas and a little bit of angel in her the whole time.” DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) DOLLY PARTON as ANGEL and JEANINE MASON as FELICITY in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr. COURTESY OF NETFLIX © 2020 In the final scene, Felicity appears in an all-white, winged angel costume featuring 1,200 Swarovski crystals and lots of tulle detailing. “I collaborated with Steven and Dolly’s team, and we made sure that it was a mirror of Dolly’s [look],” Fulp says. “When you have someone so legendary like Dolly Parton, and she’s training an angel, I was like, ‘This has to be full of fabulousness and crystals everywhere.’” DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) DOLLY PARTON as ANGEL in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr. COURTESY OF NETFLIX © 2020 For the no-nonsense, all-business character of Regina, Fulp was inspired by the fashion of New York. “It was important for me to kind of give that Manhattan Fifth Avenue, very powerful woman kind of [look, and] sharpen it, so she’s like a butter knife just coming through,” says Fulp. With that in mind, she dressed Baranski in immaculately tailored suits and coats, from brands like Max Mara and Armani, which contrasted with the town’s more casual, soft, brightly coloured fashion. “When I read the script, it was almost like her character felt misunderstood,” she explains. “I think a lot of times as strong women, we can come across as very aggressive, because of just protecting who we are.” DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) CHRISTINE BARANSKI as REGINA and JEANINE MASON as FELICITY in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr.

COURTESY OF NETFLIX © 2020 As Regina progresses through her character arc, her look changes, too. “I really wanted to make sure she looked really powerful and sharp and kind of cold. [She wore] very dark colours at the beginning, so that the audience can really see that she was about her business and not very warm,” Fulp points out. As Regina begins to process the painful memories associated with the town and starts to care for its residents, more colours appear in her wardrobe. “Her colours turn a little bit lighter and then go white for the finale with a dress by Alexander McQueen. She’s such a powerful character, but I used white to show the purity and the change of heart that she had, and add a little bit of Christmas spirit.” Fulp also had fun with Margeline (Jenifer Lewis), the town’s hairdresser and the only person who can stand up to Regina. In my favourite look from the film, she wears a graphic polka dot button-down, with a pair of red pants and loafers (pictured above). “I wanted to incorporate some geometric shaping and cool colour and texture. So, every time you saw her, she looked really jazzy and edgy and interesting and artistic because she’s a hairdresser,” notes Fulp. “I wanted to make sure that her bold and sassy personality showed through.” This also resulted in some standout jewellery pieces, too: “She has that big personality — she’s an artist, hair stylist, she’s got that big voice — so statement pieces were important.” DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) CHRISTINE BARANSKI as REGINA and JENIFER LEWIS as MARGELINE in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr.

TINA ROWDEN/NETFLIX © 2020 Fulp also paid special attention to the looks of Jenna Hathaway (Mary Lane Haskell), the pastor’s wife, taking extra care to source her looks, which included pashminas, floral skirts, and bouncy dresses. “It’s so important to me that curvy women, real women are represented. I wanted to make sure she was beautiful and sexy, but still very classy, and not frumpy. I wanted everything to be tailored to her,” says Fulp. “It was important that she’d be relatable, but also kind of unique, so that other real women could relate to her and be like, ‘I would wear that.’” DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE (L to R) MARY LANE HASKELL as JENNA and JOSH SEGARRA as PASTOR CHRISTIAN in DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE Cr.
