Thoughts and bonds: navigating rising rates


​‘Thoughts and bonds’ provides a quarterly view and outlook for the fixed income markets from the Fundamental Fixed Income team, where they share their insights on potential investment risks and opportunities.

Key takeaways:

  • The disconnect between Fed forecasts and market expectations, along with the effects of an ill-timed fiscal stimulus or a potential trade war, could impact the rates market.
  • Higher US rates should help push global rates upward, and we expect other developed market central banks to step away from their overly-accommodative policies.
  • We are closely monitoring whether credit spreads have sufficient yield to absorb new issuance and higher rates.
