The Risk of Fixed Income Indexing vs. Active Multi-Sector Management
December 12, 2013
In 2013, what investors believed to be the safe haven in their portfolios - the fixed income component - has become a source of loss and volatility. The 30-year bull bond market of declining interest rate may be over and we may be facing an environment of rising rates over at least the next two or three years. We believe that fixed income indices may be appropriate as benchmarks, but not as investment strategies. In our view, an active, value-based multi-sector approach is a better way to invest in fixed income.
