  • The Fed Cuts Rate, But The Market Expects More download

    White papers 24 September 2019

    The Fed cut rates, but the market expects more: As expected the Federal Reserve lowered its target range for the Federal Funds rate by 25 basis, and now the market anticipates as many as three more cuts by the end of 2020.

  • Fixed Income Charts And Views download

    White papers 25 July 2019

    A slowdown in global growth, with subdued inflation and dovish central banks (CB) committed to avoiding further economic deceleration, is a trend that, in our view, should remain favourable for bond investors.
