The Long View on Short-Dated Bonds

As DB pension schemes mature, there is a greater focus on de-risking and generating reliable cash to meet pension payments. Focusing on short-dated corporate bonds which are less than three-years from maturity can help schemes to capture attractive, consistent yield with minimal interest-rate sensitivity, low portfolio volatility and attractive levels of liquidity.Short-dated bonds are also attractive for the DC pensions market, which favours low-volatility investment strategies to support the decumulation phase. Illustrating with client case studies, this presentation will explain why short-dated bonds are particularly well-suited for buy-and-maintain portfolios, where bonds are held until maturity with low turnover.

How to Benefit from Credit Markets as the Cycle turns Negative

Pension schemes can protect their credit portfolios and even benefit from the volatility and idiosyncratic risks as we enter the “ late cycle” in credit markets. Only a highly flexible and active approach will avoid following credit benchmarks/indices south when spreads widen. This presentation will explore the ways investors can take advantage of market dislocations, liquidity and innovative risk management (incorporating ESG) to avoid the pitfalls when credit markets finally re-price.
