Global Fixed Income – time to rethink your fixed income allocation

It is a good time for fixed income investors to rethink their strategic allocation to fixed income. TINA, or “there is no alternative,” may be falling out of fashion as an asset allocation strategy. While the case for equities relative to fixed income had been particularly strong in the recent past, the macro backdrop has changed dramatically. With value being restored in global fixed income after the recent rate and spread correction, corporate bonds offer an attractive alternative to equities in the context of a multi-asset portfolio.
