How can added value be generated in the Fixed Income asset class against a backdrop of rising interest rates? Should we discard traditional fixed income strategies, or are we just going through a temporary difficult phase? Are “unconstrained” strategies the solution? Or do these solutions simply add illiquidity risk, credit risk and other risks to the equation? What does the situation look like for a CHF investor? How appealing are “uncorrelated” return alternatives?
