Fixed income investors should brace themselves for another challenging year. Join the team from Pictet Asset Management as we share our outlook for the year ahead. As the global economy recovers from the COVID recession, supply bottlenecks and rising energy and commodity prices are pushing inflation higher, prompting major developed and emerging market central banks to tighten monetary policy.

The US 10-year breakeven inflation rate - a market-based measure of expected inflation - recently hit a 15-year high of 2.6 per cent, a level which we think is near the upper end of the Fed’s tolerance threshold.
Markets are pricing in the possibility that central banks in the US, euro zone and the UK will have raised interest rates by at least once by the end of next year.

While central banks tightening is likely to be gradual for fear of raising borrowing costs too quickly or curtailing growth, conditions for bond investors are nevertheless at their most bearish in a decade – not least because valuations across fixed income asset classes are high.
This event is FREE to attend for investment decision makers and their advisers and is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI).
