It's Back to the Future for Fixed Income
A Fixed Income Group Sponsored Event: It's Back to the Future for Fixed Income
For the last three decades, the fixed income markets have been a tailwind for performance. Interest rates have generally trended lower, liquidity and market transparency have improved, and both investors and issuers have benefitted. Moreover, in the post-crisis world, central bank policies have had a profound impact on the risk-free rate and by extension the credit, currency, and commodity markets. However, long secular shifts in rates and supply of/demand for capital will upset the apple cart for various constituents in the market – Mmkts, HY, EM, etc. Kathleen Gaffney will discuss the unwinding of the Fed’s policies and their impact on traditional investment grade investors. She will also discuss what opportunities will arise in traditional and nontraditional fixed income, and how to position for a potentially dangerous market with illiquidity.
