Seeking alpha in fixed income

Discover how consistency delivers value to investors in emerging market bond and global credit markets.

Achieving consistent returns with active bond funds is pivotal to helping investors and their clients meet their objectives in fixed income. But how can active bond fund managers generate alpha from global credit or emerging market bonds that investors can rely on?

In this live panel our leading fixed income experts will examine the case for active global credit and emerging market fixed income. They will discuss their role as part of an investor’s strategic asset allocation, and demonstrate how a disciplined approach to risk taking can deliver value to investors by improving the consistency of alpha-generation and reducing downside risk.

Our presenters will discuss:

  • Why might investors consider a long-term allocation to Emerging Market Bonds or Global Credit
  • What are the key market dynamics that could affect these vital asset classes?
  • How can investors improve their chance of success in these markets?
