Uncorrelated sources of return

  • Wider investment opportunity set ensures returns are globally diversified
  • Low correlation historically to traditional equity and fixed income assets

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Positive returns, preservation of capital and low volatility are not guaranteed. Using derivatives may involve a higher level of risk.

Central banks were supposed to be returning towards normal monetary policy yet the economy and markets seem to have other ideas. In the space of a few months, nearly all the world’s major central banks have backtracked on their tightening rhetoric. The Absolute Return Income team at Janus Henderson had flagged this sea-change earlier this year, and in this webcast, portfolio manager Dan Siluk shares his views on what the future holds for fixed income and how the team navigates these conflicting signals. Areas covered include:

  • An assessment of the macroeconomic environment for fixed income
  • Where they see value on the yield curve and between markets
  • An update on key developments within the portfolio

The gradual removal of monetary policy accommodation by central banks is removing a price-insensitive buyer from the market and leading to reduced liquidity. Tighter monetary policy is also pushing up shorter-dated bond yields and leading to a reassessment of value on the yield curve. In this webcast, Nick Maroutsos looks at how investors can navigate the new environment for fixed income and chart a potentially less volatile path with their investments.
