  • Asian Fixed Income 2021: Reasons for Optimism Recorded: Feb 11 2021 21 mins
    Endre Pedersen, Chief Investment Officer, Fixed Income, Asia ex-Japan – Manulife Investment Management
    Following the challenges and turmoil of 2020, a year that saw unprecedented fiscal and monetary stimulus in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we believe Asian fixed income is set to shine this year.

    Against a backdrop of positive Covid-19 vaccine news and a new US presidency in 2021, Endre Pedersen, Chief Investment Officer, Fixed Income, Asia ex-Japan, shares his views on how these developments, alongside the region’s diversified economic growth, resilient credit performance and a weakening US dollar, combine to offer diverse investment opportunities and relatively attractive nominal and real yields.

    Finally, Endre considers the case for Asian fixed income to be seen as a standalone asset class rather than part of an Emerging Markets fixed income allocation.

  • Live Video - Asian Fixed Income: a Vibrant and Diverse Opportunity Recorded: Jan 22 2020 24 mins
    Neal Capecci, Portfolio Manager, Fixed Income, Pan-Asia Bonds – Manulife Investment Management
    Over the past decade, the Asian fixed income universe has benefited from significantly improved
    economic fundamentals and has grown to become one of the largest regional bond markets in the
    world, supported by institutional, regulatory and infrastructure reforms.

    Neal Capecci, Portfolio Manager, Fixed Income, Pan-Asia Bonds, shares his views on how these
    developments, alongside the manifold sources of growth and the region’s increasingly accommodative
    monetary policy, have created a quality, liquid, standalone market, which offers attractive real yields
    and diverse investment opportunities.

    Finally as the year draws to a close, Neal will look ahead to 2020 and consider the prospects and
    challenges the new year may bring.
