360° – Fixed Income Report, Q1 2019

Turbulence, disruption and uncertainty have always provided opportunities for the savvy fixed-income investor. Paradoxically, the main sources of uncertainty – Brexit, protectionism, political upheaval and end-of-cycle angst – have become almost constants in the investment universe, calling for a more forensic and nuanced approach.

In the latest issue of 360°, Andrew Jackson, Head of Fixed Income at Hermes, and his team of specialist investors provide a quarterly outlook of risks and opportunities across the credit spectrum – from public to private debt, leveraged loans, structured securities and asset-based lending.
