IE Conjecture podcast: Discussing Global Bonds
InvestmentEurope’s latest Conjecture on Global Bonds is available on demand.
Portfolios of Global Bonds, particularly those involving Government Bonds, are rarely out of the news these days.
Investors clearly are interested by the sector, as evidenced by recent launches of new Global Bond products. However, questions remain about the balance between opportunities – such as strong risk-adjusted return relative to volatile equity and commodity markets – contrasted against possible downsides – ultra-low yields, fears about inflation returning, and managing higher default risk from developed as opposed to emerging countries. Other questions remain about how best to make strong risk-adjusted returns, and where to position portfolio duration.
