Fixed income strategies for low and rising rates

  • Despite concern about rising rates, the more serious issue for
    institutional investors is historically low yields and the outlook
    for below-average fixed income returns in the future.
  • The eight-year bull market and benign credit environment
    have largely masked the risks of increasing equity exposure or
    relying on a broad U.S. bond market benchmark to meet
    expected rates of return.
  • Diversifying fixed income portfolios with “plus” sectors, such
    as emerging market debt and floating rate loans, and private
    strategies — middle market senior loans and mezzanine debt
    — can be a partial solution to low yields and rising rates.4
