In the latest Big Debate, our panelists from TwentyFour Asset Management and Integral Asset Management discussed does fund size matter when investing in Fixed Income?
Advisers have become used to allocating to large fixed income funds for their clients because there is ‘safety’ in size.
But going forward with the changes in fixed income sectors post-Lehman’s, is that the right strategy.
Is small beautiful or big better when deciding which funds and sectors to use for fixed income allocations.
What are the arguments for big funds versus small funds? How much liquidity is there actually in the bond sectors? Does diversification of fixed income assets and positions actually work?
How can value be delivered with a top down or bottom-up strategy?
What is the current state of the fixed income markets with the first move in interest rates coming with the recent ECB rate cut?
