Fixed income allocations were put through a major stress test in March 2020, forcing many investors to reconsider the role of fixed income allocations in their portfolios. We check in on the performance of fixed income sectors and how they held up as sources of stability, liquidity, and portfolio diversification. The rate and spread landscape has now changed dramatically – we edge closer to the zero bound on interest rates with possibly meaningful implications for diversification potential of rates while credit spreads are significantly wider in line with increased default risk. At the same time, operators are reassessing the correlation of their own liabilities to asset price movements. We explore what this means for cash management segmentation and broader portfolio allocations going forward.
