Fixed income is finally back in vogue this year but navigating choppy markets is raising big asset allocation questions for fund selectors.
Doubts over stubborn inflation and peaking interest rates have led to diverging views on where to position portfolios along the duration curve while the rise in risk assets continues to defy most outlooks.
There are opportunities aplenty if you can be flexible enough to take them and the ability to be nimble within fund selectors’ asset allocation has never been more important. The window of opportunity within the markets is shorter than ever.
As a result, this roundtable, in partnership with J.P. Morgan Asset Management, assessed the market outlook, prospects within fixed income, the duration conundrum and why it is important to be opportunistic with portfolios.
