This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the launch of the M&G Optimal Income Fund. In that time the global economy was plunged into recession, the Eurozone project came under threat, and central banks cut interest rates to historic low levels. The ramifications of these events have been wide-ranging, with fixed income investors having to continually adjust their expectations for the levels the bond yields could plunge to. In this webcast, Richard will be discussing more recent events, including the UK’s decision to leave the EU and the upcoming US Presidential elections. With geopolitical events increasingly generating headwinds for the global economy, Richard will also discuss how central banks like the ECB and Bank of England will likely react to future crises, and which assets he thinks are best value within the fixed income universe.
The webcast is expected to last up to an hour. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.
