The global credit markets are at the forefront of many investors’ minds. Japan and Europe are deeply into quantitative easing and extraordinary central bank accommodation while the U.S. and the U.K may be approaching a period of tightening. Low sovereign rates in the developing markets have had a profound impact on the yields and spreads of riskier fixed income asset classes. The debate over the current nature of risk and the pricing of risk in a number of bond markets, affects asset allocation and security selection decisions for professional investors and policy-makers alike. Moreover, volatility in energy prices has affected a significant portion of the high yield market in North America. Dr. Roberts will discuss his view of the macro-economic landscape as well as the implications of his views for the U.S. and global credit markets.
