Dazed and Confused 

Global Fixed Income Team
Bond markets were a bit more orderly in October than the mayhem experienced in September. That said, markets were still mixed, and investors could be excused for feeling a bit dazed and confused with regards to volatility, dispersion of returns, illiquidity, central bank policies and deciphering how to determine value.

Snap Back to Reality 

Global Fixed Income Team
August ended the summer flirtation with bull market dreams. After strong recoveries in July, bond markets turned down once again in August, generating large negative returns. Yields, spreads, and equities have not (at least yet) returned to their June nadir.

Annus Horribilis 

Global Fixed Income Team
While many problems in the world can be blamed on the Russian/Ukrainian situation, it is not the primary driver anymore. The reason for the carnage in April: inflation, inflation, inflation! The Global Fixed Income team shares its thoughts.
