Senior Investment Strategist Esty Dwek discusses duration risk associated with rising rates.

  • With US 10-year Treasury yields breaching 3%, how much upside remains?
  • Markets are less confident about the path for rates in 2019.
  • A cautious approach may be warranted.
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.
