Over the next few months we’ll be giving you an inside look at our discussions with investment experts and fund managers. We’ll be sharing videos of our Question & Answer sessions with professionals from our network.
These sessions form part of our investment committee’s intel collection and assist us to ensure we’re recommending a best of breed solution. We’re excited to open some of these discussions up to a wider audience and hope you find them enjoyable.
In this post, I had a chat with Hugh Holden from Pimco about fixed interest as an asset class.
We discuss four main areas that we thought important for our clients:
- Many investors have a material amount of their wealth invested in the fixed interest asset class, especially in super, yet they know very little about it. How do you best explain the asset class to investors? What do they need to focus on when reviewing how exposed they should be?
- How should an investor interpret the recent news about rising yields? How do these yields impact the price of fixed interest assets?
- There is a lot of speculation about rising inflation. How does this impact fixed interest assets? Where do you think inflation is heading for the future?
- What returns might we expect in the long term, what should we expect from this asset class?
