Practitioners’ Insights: Fixed Income Investing During an Economic Slowdown
Fixed income markets tend to do well in periods of weaker economic growth, given a reduced appetite for risk and rising expectations of policy support in the form of interest-rate cuts. However, each slowdown, and the subsequent policy and market responses, are different. Therefore, investors need to adopt the most appropriate approach if they want to maintain a balanced portfolio. Apart from being aware of macroeconomic factors, investment strategies also need to reflect institutional constraints and behaviour.
In this webinar, Tanay Dalal provides a simple framework that will help you to decipher the economic backdrop. He also explains how this information can be used to motivate investment themes.
