  • Emerging Market Local Currency Debt: Recovering Trade Balances download

    In 2018, one issue for emerging market (EM) debt was that growth was very unipolar: we had decent growth out of the US but it was fairly lacklustre in Europe. This was partly due to a succession of special factors: new pollution regulations knocked the car industry, low water levels in the Rhine impacted manufacturing and yellow vest protests in France were widely disruptive. The Brexit fiasco has not helped, either.

  • Convertible Bonds: Natural Asymmetry download

    Although a fixed income asset, the structure of convertible bonds provides a natural asymmetry that has the potential to deliver long-term equity like performance.

  • Priced for Perfection download

    GAM Systematic’s Anthony Lawler explains how investors can seek to diversify their portfolios at a time when valuations in both equity and bond markets are beginning to look stretched.

    Clouds are gathering for the global economy

  • Multi-Asset Strategies: Worrying developments

    Late-cycle dynamics, geopolitical tensions, trade wars and uncertainty surrounding Brexit are making investors jittery

  • What next for US Treasuries?

    A consensus on the direction of 10-year US Treasury rates is not obvious, because the answer reverts to a further question: whose consensus? Strategists, economists and other informed professionals have a particular view. The market itself, however, expresses a more diffuse and different opinion.

    How multi-asset, alternative risk premia strategies are disrupting the alternatives sector
