Elevated Panel

Fixed income – walking the tightrope between the low interest rate environment and rising interest rates

Tuesday, 22. January 2019, 16:00 - 16:45 UHR

GLASKUBUS ІІ

English

Speaker(s): Quentin Fitzsimmons, Barney Goodchild, Eoin Walsh, Martin Wilhelm

Presenter: Christian Trixl


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?
