OUR STRATEGIES

Today’s markets may be unsteady, portfolios needn’t be

When it comes to financial markets, no two days are the same, and you need an investment portfolio that is prepared to meet sudden market changes and help keep your financial goals on course.

The right allocation to bonds could help you do this. Bonds provide the opportunity for higher and more diversified returns by investing in bonds with different durations – from short-duration (usually bonds which have a 1 – 5-year lifetime) to century bonds (100-year bond) – and credit quality – ranging from investment grade (typically highly rated bonds) to high yield (typically low-rated bonds).

The diverse and versatile nature of the asset class, could help mitigate the impact from inflation and market volatility, and enhance your returns through an allocation to high yield and emerging markets. Therefore, depending on your risk tolerance, duration needs, investment philosophy and financial goals, adding bonds to your investment portfolio could help you build a portfolio that is tailored both to your needs and each stage of the economic cycle.
