Why is everyone talking about fixed income?

Fixed income can provide predictable returns, while its low correlation with equities diversifies investment portfolio returns, helping preserve capital when economic storms hit.

Are you taking on too much portfolio risk?

Fixed income can provide predictable income, diversification from equities and capital preservation for investment portfolios.

Where to find income when interest rates are zero

Fixed income offers predictable income which can be boosted by taking credit risk and interest rate risk. However, both risks need to be actively managed.

Invested in passive funds? Time to take an active interest

Active management of risk in fixed income portfolios can minimise the number of months that investors experience negative returns over a multi-year investment period.

Does investing responsibly make a difference?

Most professional investors now evaluate companies’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials as part of their investment process to help ensure business models and cashflows are sustainable.

QE is getting us to ‘the other side’,
but what happens when we get there?

Massive purchases of government fixed income by central banks have caused prices of fixed income to rise. As a consequence, prices of other asset classes have also increased.
