Fixed Income Outlook: Navigating the Fed, Fiscal Stimulus & Negative Real Yields

Negative real yields, a weakening dollar and the mounting fiscal deficit pose a trio of challenges for fixed income investors in 2021. We believe what’s needed is an active approach to managing these risks, according to Ken Taubes, Amundi US CIO and portfolio manager of our core and core plus bond strategies.

Ken discusses:

  • His favored areas of the market 
  • Why he believes Treasuries still have a role despite being “expensive” 
  • Why investors might have to get used to a weaker dollar for longer  



Additional Insights

  •  Hyper growth stocks to make way for “stay-at-home” stocks
  •  That even Europe could see some recovery
  •  Inflation starting to spike in areas of the market outside those “where we like it”…
