Jim Leaviss, James Tomlins
Please join our webcast on 20 May 2021 at 10:00 EST with fixed income fund managers Jim Leaviss and James Tomlins, as they discuss the prosect of higher global inflation and what this means for bond markets. Jim and James will outline several factors that could push inflation higher in the near-term, such as the unprecedented levels of fiscal and monetary stimulus, the release of pent-up demand as the global economy re-opens and the recent rise in commodity and food prices. Against this they will consider some of the longer-term forces that could see inflationary pressures diminish over time, such as the potential long-term economic damage caused by the pandemic. While inflation is traditionally seen as negative for bonds, Jim and James will outline some of the fixed income strategies and instruments they are using within their funds to help offset the negative impact of rising inflation.
