"Global Opportunities in a Rising Rate Environment"

Rising interest rates pose a significant threat to traditional fixed income investors. Taking an unconstrained approach to global fixed income investing provides investors with the ability to position defensively with regard to interest-rate risk while capitalizing on opportunities around the globe.

Topic overview:

Effects on Monetary Policy changes

  • Global liquidity conditions remain abundant despite fears of Fed's tampering.
  • Normalization of interest rates from distortedly low levels has already started and is likely to be more long-term in nature.

Opportunities in Emerging Markets

  • Emerging-market countries are less reliant on foreign capital as they were a decatde ago.
  • All emerging markets are not equal - fundamentals differ widely.
  • Individual country selection is essential for seeking attractive returns.

China's New Growth Model

  • Lower trend growth rate but sufficient to support global aggregate demand.
  • China's economy is increasingly a domestic demand story rather than primarily reliant on investment spending.
