Schroders’ Co-Head of Fixed Income, Philippe Lespinard, outlines his expectations for the year ahead in global fixed income markets:
- The sun is shining on the European bond market – the current environment of subdued growth and low inflation as well as the recently announced asset purchase policy should support European bonds.
- We are less positive on the US, where stronger economy growth and a tightening labour market as well as a potential normalisation of interest rates later in the year could be less positive for US fixed income.
- The rest of the world is seeing mixed weather, particularly in emerging markets where energy producing countries are being hampered by the fall in oil price, while others are benefitting
