Can absolute return bond funds achieve their targets in a low yield environment?

Schroders webconference: Many absolute return bond funds have found it difficult to generate their target level of returns over recent quarters as many bond yields have fallen below zero. Alan Cauberghs, Senior Investment Director for Fixed Income, examines the tools that managers can use to generate positive absolute returns and what market conditions are required to achieve their targets in future.

    Credit is a significant part of many of our clients’ portfolios, which is why we started Credit Insights -- a new webinar series aimed at delivering our latest views and outlooks on the global credit market.

    This session: Although we are seeing signs of a recovery in the global economy, there are risks to momentum for the balance of 2017. In the US, despite having failed to deliver on a number of campaign promises in his first 100 days in office, President Trump is still the best… and possibly last… chance for inflation and growth in the USA. Monetary stimulus has run its course. Next, is fiscal stimulus. Where does our research team differ from the market consensus on the potential winners and losers of potential tax and trade policy reform? We hope you can attend to find out.
