    A combination of risk factors, most notably the COVID-19 virus’ impact on the global economy, has increased the level of market volatility. However, fixed income investors should not lose sight of the key characteristics that bonds provide: capital protection, income generation and lower volatility. While uncertainty can shake investor confidence and can lead to costly mistakes, consistent income can help stabilise client outcomes.

    In this webcast session, Jason England, Portfolio Manager, Absolute Return Income Strategy, will share the team’s views on the outlook for rates in times of rising global risks and expand on how to add diversification and consistent income to a fixed income allocation.

  • The myths about bonds that you hear year after year Recorded: Feb 12 2020 27 mins
    Jenna Barnard & John Pattullo
    The finance industry has a blind spot when it comes to forecasting government bond yields: a lazy bias based on outmoded economic thinking and narrative fallacies has perpetuated a pattern of higher yield forecasts over more than 25 years.

    Jenna Barnard and John Pattullo, Co Heads of the Strategic Fixed Income Team, have long held a non consensual view on bond yields. In this webcast, they will explain how pragmatic use of duration management has helped generate additional risk adjusted returns for their portfolios.

    Sharing the team’s structural views and thematic approach to investing, they will also explain the core tenets of their approach in managing both strategic and income strategies. These include not only a focus on structural factors that weigh down and cap bond yields at low levels but also shorter term cyclical factors. John and Jenna will further explain their distinctive style of credit investing, which they call ‘sensible income’.
