Asian Fixed Income 2021: Reasons for Optimism

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.

  • Natural Climate Solutions – decarbonising your investment portfolio Recorded: Jun 23 2021 47 mins
    Eric Cooperström, Managing Director, Impact Investing and Natural Climate Solutions, Manulife Investment Management
    Join Eric Cooperström, Managing Director, Impact Investing and Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) at Manulife Investment Management, as he discusses how natural climate solutions aim to increase carbon storage and avoid greenhouse gas emissions through conservation and restoration of forests, agricultural land, grasslands and wetlands. The discussion will be moderated by Sydney McConathy, Senior Managing Director, Head of Global Business Development and will include a live Q&A session at the end.

    As the world’s largest timberland and leading agriculture investment manager (1), with over 30 years of experience investing in natural resources, we believe the need to utilise natural resources to address climate change has never been stronger: carbon sequestration is key to avoiding the worst effects of climate change, and natural climate solutions are critical to achieving net zero goals. Carbon removal using forest and agriculture is a key, low cost, climate change solution, which could provide a long-term, diversified investment opportunity whilst decarbonising your portfolio.

    Join us to learn how investors in forestry and agriculture can make a demonstrable impact on the great challenge of our time.

    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.

    challenges the new year may bring.
