Fixed income is generally considered to be a more stable, dependable investment option. However, central bank policies, including low interest rates, have driven returns from areas of fixed income such as government bonds to record lows.
Investing in the debt of companies, also called credit fixed income, can offer benefits. Typically, the returns corporate bonds offer is higher than those from cash and government bonds over time and may provide diversification. However, credit is a wide-ranging area. Detailed thought and analysis is required to make sure each investment opportunity stacks up. In today’s connected world a global view is helpful to get the full picture, and to provide diversification.
