Our second global fixed income study (2019) provides insights on the views, opinions and experiences of 145 fixed income specialists, responsible for the fixed income components of portfolios totalling US$14 trillion in AUM1.
These specialists work across pension funds (both defined benefit and defined contribution), sovereign wealth funds, insurers and wholesale investors including private banks, diversified fund managers, multi-managers, and model builders.
With the end of the cycle considered to be in sight and some seminal changes to consider in relation to the construction of global fixed income assets and their role in wider portfolios, fixed income investors are facing more challenging conditions ahead.
The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.
Where individuals or the business have expressed opinions, they are based on current market conditions, they may differ from those of other investment professionals and are subject to change without notice.
