With the historically long period of low interest rates seeming to have no end in sight, an increasing number of institutional asset allocators are considering higher income earning investment areas. With strong and consistent returns shown in the high yield, multi-credit and emerging market fixed income sectors, asset allocators are faced with a growing array of choice. However, the same issues of appropriate manager selection, risk management plus the conundrum of in-house versus external management of fixed income investments remains a headache many asset owners are still to overcome.
The 6th annual Investing in Fixed Income, Europe 2017 report will delve into the views of institutional asset allocators from the world of pensions, insurance and foundations to explore the expanding universe of fixed income investments. The subject matter will include a look at the macro-economic environment, alternative fixed income, multi-asset class investments and developing your fixed income allocations as part of a wider portfolio.
