Karsten Bierre & Søren Lolle of Nordea AM to join Lausanne Summit
Karsten Bierre, senior portfolio manager, and Søren Lolle, Portfolio Manager on the Multi Assets Team at Nordea Asset Management will be discussing the need for a flexible approach to fixed income when they take part in InvestmentEurope‘s upcoming Pan-European Summit Lausanne 2016, 19-21 April.
They will consider factors such as duration risk, credit risk, and whether to favour government bonds over investment grade bonds – all in context of current market yields and the uncertain macroeconomic environment.
