Jenna Barnard, Co-Head of Strategic Fixed Income, confesses to not all birthday gifts being a delight to receive but a book from 1892, found by chance in a second-hand book dealer, turned out to be a rare birthday present gem. Its lessons on investing are not only instructive but shine a light on the predicament facing bond investors today.
With the markets finally coming round to the idea of the late-cycle stage in the economies, John Pattullo and Jenna Barnard, Co-Heads of Strategic Fixed Income, share their thoughts on the subject, expanding on the risks and opportunities arising from this theme in 2019.
