Conference Details and Registration

Summary

After years of ZIRP (zero interest rate policy), what will be the pace and path to interest rate normalization? Is the neutral rate likely to be lower in the future given secular headwinds from such issues as aging populations in major economies, globalization, technology disrupters, and the debt supercycle? How will the blending of politics and policies in the United States alter the economic and financial market landscape? Do investment managers need to be more flexible and opportunistic to succeed in the new environment? With myriad fundamental questions lingering in today’s global debt markets comes an increased need for savvy bond investors who have the skills and insights to find opportunity through differentiation and deliver value to investors.

At Fixed-Income Management 2017, leading practitioners will navigate what is happening in global bond markets, take a closer look at the path of growth in developed and emerging economies, and discover where leading investors are finding opportunities, value, and protection against uncertainty.

Covering practical topics that focus on fixed-income sectors, security selection, and portfolio construction, this year’s conference brings together researchers, analysts, portfolio managers, and top strategists to focus on:

  • The sustainability of economic growth: What is the outlook for global economic growth? Are there upside and downside risks to this current period of economic stability? What is the outlook for inflation?

  • Lower-for-longer or rising rates? What is the path to rate normalization? How can investors prepare for the uncertainties surrounding a reversal of unconventional monetary policy? How and when will the US Federal Reserve be able to reduce its $4.5 trillion balance sheet?

  • Politics and policy: What will be the effects of politics and policies (including monetary, fiscal, trade, and exchange rates) on world economic growth and financial markets?

  • The active vs. passive debate in bond management: With trillions invested in passive-indexed bond funds, what is the future for active-bond management?

  • Credit and high-yield strategies: Are there still opportunities in investment-grade corporate and high-yield bonds, or have markets moved ahead of the fundamentals?

  • Impact of China: What will be the effects on markets of slower growth and high debt levels (including the rise of shadow bank lending) in China?

  • Emerging markets: Are emerging markets the global bright spot in terms of growth and opportunity? What are the downside risks? What are the most attractive emerging sovereign debt, credit, and currency markets?

  • Currencies: What effects will trade policy have on the US dollar and other currencies?

  • Portfolio management: Where will investors find the greatest value and opportunities in a range of fixed-income securities and sectors?

  • Future sources of volatility: After a long period of low market volatility, have investors become too complacent?
