global monetary policy

Leverage loans. The next trigger?

Yield not equal to return

Chris Iggo (AXA IM) | Bonds have sold off a bit last week, but I believe that the bull market remains in place. Global monetary policy is about to be eased yet there are reasons to be relatively relaxed about the near-term growth outlook. The mini-bond sell-off will make yields a bit more attractive. However, yield does not equate to return unless you hold bonds to maturity and there remains scope for returns to be substantially higher than current yields, especially at the long-end of the maturity spectrum.
