    1. Why you should still stay invested in bonds

    Because bonds are a natural hedge of other asset classes such as equities but it means that you MUST favour high-quality bonds only, with good liquidity and without high correlation to equities in order to deliver positive performance when stock markets are in negative territory.

    2. What are the asset classes that should be favoured?

    In EUR, we favour APP (Asset Purchase Program) bonds (Govies + PSPP + CSPP), i.e. bonds bought by the ECB (EUR 80 billion/month) and in USD, we stay overweight long US Treasuries (both 30y nominal bonds and TIPS which are inflation-linked). In USD, we also favour high quality emerging bonds (but high quality only). We avoid any kind of bonds which eventually behave like equities in bear markets (high yield, deeply subordinated bank debt).

    Eric Vanraes, Fixed Income Portfolio Manager at EI Sturdza Investment Funds Recorded: Apr 13 2016 38 mins
    Focus: The current low yield environment and central bank policies that lead to a cruel dilemma - is it still possible to invest in bonds offering both decent yield and quality?

    Conclusion: It’s possible but predominantly in USD and we believe there are two types of solution, long US treasuries (30y and inflation-linked 30y) and hi-quality emerging markets.

    Eric Vanraes, Fixed Income Portfolio Manager at EI Sturdza Investment Funds Recorded: Dec 9 2015 48 mins
    The presentation will cover the short term outlook and medium term outlook (H2 2016), including the following topics:


    1. Macroeconomic outlook (US, Europe, China). Weaker growth everywhere:

    · Europe is disappointing despite the alignment of planets

    · The US has probably already reached a peak and will start to decline

    · China is slowing but will avoid a hard landing

    2. Consequences of Central bank policies: Dovish everywhere

    · QE2 in Europe

    · Lower rates in China

    · US: QE4 and/or negative rates

    3. How do we manage our Euro and Global bond funds in this environment?
