Global Fixed Income and Credit: The Magic Eight Ball says...

Wed, May 16, 2018 2:02 PM EDT{LOCAL_TZ}

The Federal Reserve looks to be on a clear path of raising interest rates as tax cuts and government spending power economic growth. But even with that clarity, fixed-income allocators find themselves wrestling with a litany of troubling realities such as expensive valuations, puny spreads and moderate to non-existent volatility.

In this complex environment, which fixed income and credit strategies –from core-plus/barbell approaches to structured private credit – are going to be most viable going forward? And how close – or far – do investors need to look to find dependable sources of return?

This webinar will cover the global fixed income and credit landscape, identifying both opportunities and potential pitfalls, giving institutional asset owners, whether their goal is capital preservation or alpha generation, a close-up look at this important asset class.

Our panel will discuss:

  • Are interest rates really rising? Will it last?
  • Duration: Should investors go long or short?
  • Emerging market debt: Too much risk for the reward?
  • Opportunities in high yield
  • The currency factor
In addition, the panel will take questions from the audience.
