Our most recent CIO Special report looks at the latest yield developments and the challenges and opportunities for fixed income and equity investors.
Topics covered include:
- Along with rising inflation and growth expectations, yields have been increasing of late.
- This creates challenges as well as opportunities for investors both in equities and fixed income instruments.
- The recent uptick in nominal yields has been attributed to a rise in real yields, which is usually associated with higher economic growth expectations.
- If economic growth does indeed pick up, investors in risky assets – be they in equity or credit – should benefit, everything else being equal. If dynamics change, however, investors may have to adjust portfolios.
