Redefining Fixed Income (CFA Institute Enterprising Investor)
"The days when investors could rely on traditional bonds as safe, income-producing securities that hedge equity risk and deliver returns that keep pace with inflation are finished."
Myth-Busting: Low Rates Don’t Justify High Valuations (CFA Institute Enterprising Investor)
"Since interest rates have been declining across the globe and have reached all-time lows, we should expect a new regime with record-high equity multiples for stocks across markets. Of course, relationships in finance are rarely linear and we have good data sets at hand to evaluate this theory."
Fixed Income: Low Yields Don’t Tell the Whole Story (PIMCO)
"It’s tempting these days for some investors to question the role of fixed income in portfolios. After all, real yields have plunged, potentially leading to less income today and smaller capital gains tomorrow. But yields are far from the full story. Despite low yields, bonds can continue to diversify risk in broad portfolios. Interest rates may fall further, boosting valuations. And some segments of the fixed income market – credit in particular – remain attractive relative to equities, in our view."
