Sector-allocation decisions form an integral part of many equity and fixed income investment processes, but their significance is very different in both asset classes. While the divergences in regional stock-market returns in 2020 were largely due to the different sector makeups of the respective benchmark indices, the corresponding credit-market performances were much more consistent across the globe.

In this webinar, Christoph Schon will use Axioma’s new Factor-based Fixed Income Risk Model to demonstrate that while sectors do play a role in credit investment management, they do so to a much lesser extent than one might expect.
