Fixed Income Amid Rising Rates: Challenges and Opportunities
Loomis Sayles Fixed Income Manager Matt Eagan shares insights on navigating the current fixed income markets.
- Fixed income investors are likely to face continued pressure from rising interest rates in the near term.
- Despite interest rate challenges, certain sectors present opportunities that may prove favorable over time.
- In emerging markets, credit quality is more dispersed than in the past, which means rising rates are likely to affect each economy differently.
Fixed-Income securities may carry one or more of the following risks: credit, interest rate (as interest rates rise bond prices usually fall), inflation and liquidity. Below investment-grade fixed-income securities may be subject to greater risks (including the risk of default) than other fixed-income securities.
