Skyrocketing consumer prices around the world are once again turning the correlation of stock and bond returns positive, severely limiting diversification opportunities for multi-asset class investors. The accompanying surge in interest rates sent shockwaves through government and investment-grade bond markets, as traders brought forward their expectations of central-bank rate hikes. Index-linked government securities were hit especially hard and are now as risky as equities. High-yield bonds, in contrast, benefitted from tighter credit spreads, as stock markets continued their ascent. Commodity currencies also stand to profit from the underlying rise in costs for energy and raw materials.
Join us in this webinar to hear more about the biggest risks and opportunities in multi-asset class investing in the coming year.
