Invesco Global Fixed Income Study 2018

Since the turmoil of the financial crisis, investors are navigating a great calm in fixed income markets, however, there is a sense amongst investors that the prevailing period of calm is coming to an end as central bank intervention is withdrawn and investor behaviours subsequently change.

Our first annual fixed income study offers unique insights into the trends within this ever changing asset class via 79 in-depth face-to-face interviews with leading fixed income specialists across pension funds, sovereign investors, insurers and private banks globally.

2018 Key themes:

  1. The “new normalisation” of fixed income.
  2. Low yields remain the dominant challenge; but aging, regulation, and geo-politics are seeping into investor thinking
  3. Managing the migration of ESG to fixed income
  4. Core fixed income vs alternative credit strategy
  5. Broad appeal of alternative credit
  6. Most investors use a hybrid model of internal and external asset management
