Fixed-income markets have evolved rapidly of late, and central bankers have now taken the lead role in supporting economic revival. Excessively accommodative monetary policy across the globe has on the one hand led to record-low interest rates and exponential growth in outstanding credit, while on the other hand a disruptive environment has caused losses on the risk and credit side.


In this webinar, Mahendra Jajoo will outline a framework to assess the macro environment and conceptualize views on interest rates. He will also talk about appropriate portfolio construction and risk management practices to avoid big mistakes.


Learning outcomes:

  1. A framework for conceptualizing views on interest rates
  2. Techniques for constructing a fixed-income portfolio and managing risk



This is the archived version of a live webinar that took place on 16 April 2020
