Session 1 - Economic outlook and global fixed income opportunities
Independent Trustee and Chair of the Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Pension Scheme
Economic outlook and Bond Investment: What now?
• Where next for inflation and the implications for monetary policy?
• Global economic and market outlook and impact for UK investors
• Which areas of financial markets are most vulnerable to further crises?
• Fixed income investment implications
We have been expecting you, Mr Bond!
Elevated inflation and an aggressive monetary policy response created a sharp correction in market rates, together with increased macroeconomic uncertainty and market volatility. Looking ahead, we believe that the macro backdrop will stabilize and with improved valuations, it may be time to reconsider public fixed income as an attractive asset class. This session will consider key fixed income themes, including valuation opportunities, the need for active management and the macro regime transition.
