We are pleased to announce the upcoming webinar “Practitioners’ Insights: Coronavirus Crisis & Global Fixed Income” on 23 July, 2020 at 5.30 pm – 6.30 pm IST.
Not just in India, but in the rest of the world too, fixed income markets have had a roller coaster ride. Many consider bonds to be relatively safer, yet yields are at historic lows. This has left asset allocators and those seeking safe income with difficult choices. In this webinar, Dr. Arvind Rajan will review the current and future challenges faced by the global fixed income market.
• How did the coronavirus crisis impact global bond markets (yield curves and spread markets)?
• What was the impact of public health, fiscal and monetary responses on Fixed Income?
• What has the crisis revealed about market structure and liquidity?
• How will these affect investors globally seeking safe investment?
• Will Covid slow down or accelerate the reach for yield?
• What are the long term prospects for inflation post-Covid?
• Discussion of the global need for alternative safe investments
