Credit Pulse: market update – 12 March 2021

How does the fixed-income team use different types of loans to protect investments from inflation in this current environment and why have asset-backed securities (ABS) grown more attractive as concerns over rates increase?

In this instance of Credit Pulse, Fraser Lundie, Head of Credit, was joined by Anna Karim, Investment Director in the Fixed Income team, to discuss some of the questions and problems our clients are seeing. Also on the call were Andrey Kuznetsov CFA, Senior Portfolio Manager, Andrew Lennox, Senior Portfolio Manager, and Emeric Chenebaux, Structured Credit Analyst, who looked at the different types of loans they use to protect investments from inflation, the benefit of leveraged loans to provide flexibility in credit strategies and how asset-backed securities have grown more attractive as concerns over rates increase.
