Fixed Income - Finding high yield amidst dubious credit quality

Investors appear to be piling into the junk bond market as they continue to deal with very low yields in government bonds pushing the timeline to de-risk further out. High yield companies typically exhibit greater leverage than investment grade companies and have been recently offering higher levels of yield in comparison. Can investors get their solace elsewhere finding a balance between enhancing portfolio yield and issuer credit quality?

In this webinar, Lidia Treiber, Director of Research at WisdomTree provides an overview of key themes impacting fixed income markets today and the predicament investors are facing. She will also discuss potential methods investors can consider to enhance portfolio yield using unique passive exposures.

Jason Guthrie, Head of Capital Markets in Europe, will touch on fixed income Exchange traded fund (ETF) flows in Europe and provide insight into how investors should be analysing newly launched ETF solutions for this growing asset class.

+ Fixed Income Market Update
+ Fixed income ETF investment trends (flows)
+ Methods to enhance yield given current market conditions
+ AT1 CoCo Bonds - what are they and how they can help boost yields

    Gold prices have shaken off the weakness from 2018, with sentiment towards the metal recovering strongly at the beginning of this year. Can gold hold onto the gains or will risk-on sentiment take the shine off the metal?

    Jesper Koll, WisdomTree's Head of Japan
    2019/20 is poised to be a relatively good year for Japanese risk assets, with a focus on Japan small-cap equities in particular. The deep-value of attractive valuations can potentially be unlocked by the combination of positive domestic growth surprises, rising M&A activity, as well as stable monetary and fiscal policy support. Against a backdrop of global uncertainty, Japanese domestic small cap stocks appear a great place to hide for outperformance.
