Thoughts and Bonds: uncharted territory



The latest quarterly view on the fixed income environment and outlook from senior members of the Janus Henderson Fundamental Fixed Income Team.

Key takeaways:

  • The team believes that developed world central banks will act prudently as they reverse accommodative monetary policy, but an unintentionally coordinated unwind could pose significant risks to bond holders.
  • The Fed's tightening cycle is expected to remain gradual, but the team believes the number of forthcoming interest rate increases is set to fall between market and Fed expectations.
  • The team does not believe this is the time to engage in aggressive portfolio positioning, given few catalysts to drive spreads significantly tighter, but numerous threats to the downside.
