A Fixed Income Group Event

Despite low yields and tight credit spreads, fixed income is more intriguing than ever. Our CFALA Fixed Income Community of Interest has selected three very established fixed income investors to discuss, in a panel format, how to navigate the bond market today. Topics of discussion will include, the future path of interest rates and credit spreads, the fixed income sectors which offer the best value and how to navigate current and expected fiscal and monetary policy.

Do negative interest rates abroad matter? Should you still be worried about the energy and commodity sectors? Will trade policy changes affect the current outlook for credit markets? Can the Fed wait until December again for another hike?

You will have a chance to hear their thoughts on optimal fixed income allocation and views on interest rates, credit spreads, high yield, emerging markets, special lending/structured credit, and opportunities in Europe against the backdrop of the upcoming elections.
