Lower rates and flatter yields are no blip. The old ways of finding yield no longer apply.
Is your Fixed Income portfolio right for today’s environment? Or are you still doing things the way you did them years ago?
We have ideas for Fixed Income portfolios that are optimized for today’s market. Ideas for finding yield at the right levels of risk.
The fact is - your Fixed Income portfolio is probably dated. You need a portfolio that is optimized for now.
Emerging bond markets have rallied strongly since the sharp drawdown last year. Valuations have recovered even as some fundamentals – such as debt sustainability and fiscal discipline – have become challenged. But while the start of 2021 has shown that smooth sailing cannot be guaranteed, there are reasons to remain optimistic towards EMD.
For more yield, albeit with more risk, EM Debt is the place to go. EMD is a versatile asset. Its low correlations with global equities and global bonds make it a welcome addition for both global equity and debt investors.
What makes sense and what should you avoid in a year that looks different from the others. Altaf Kassam, our EMEA Head of Investment Strategy and Research gives a practical guide to where to find yield in 2021.
