2022 was a year to forget for fixed income investors as a sharp spike up in inflation and aggressive interest rate rises sent bond yields soaring and bond prices tumbling.
2023 is shaping up very differently. Value has returned and bond yields are competitive. With inflation set to tumble, should investors lock in today’s attractive yields? Are credit markets pricing in an economic slowdown? Can emerging market bonds stage a comeback?
Join us for our virtual Invested in Connecting Fixed Income Forum via live video stream on Thursday 23 February 2023 at 2pm UK time (3pm CET) as we answer these and many other questions. Featuring our fixed income experts, this 1 ½ hour event will be a packed session, short on time but long on content. Register now so you don’t miss out.
