In the latest Big Debate, our panelists from Legg Mason Global Asset Management, S&P Capital IQ and TwentyFour Asset Management discussed Fixed Income.
Do investors have to give up income for safety in bond markets?
The best performing fixed income assets over the last 12 months have been gilts and index linked gilts, as investors look towards the ‘safe haven' of UK Government debt.
But with concerns over the weakness of the UK economy, how much performance is left in this sector, which in reality is providing investors with negative real returns, even with inflation falling?
Should investors be looking to other fixed income sectors, such as strategic or global bonds, or could investors build a portfolio with a much higher allocation to fixed income by utilising all the different bond strategies?
Should fixed income be viewed as an income generating investment, one for capital preservation or a combination of both?
And what is the outlook for high risk sectors such as EMD or High Yield.
The Fixed Income Big Debate covers all of these issues and hear from some leading fund managers managing a range of fixed income funds.
