Meet Your New Fixed Income Yield Opportunities


How are U.S. credit markets poised to offer competitive yields in Israel?
We face uncertainty amid unprecedented political changes around the world – but is there a silver lining?
With asset correlations reverting back to their historical mean, emphasis is on diversification to punch up yield. This leaves bond investors once again surfing the wave of both global growth uncertainty and U.S. Fed rate hikes.
Join us for the ride as our panel of leading experts uncovers new opportunities in the fixed income space, including:

  • The macroeconomic and geopolitical landscape and what's in store for U.S. credit markets
  • Whether U.S. investment grade and high yield corporate bonds may be that special rubber that hits the road
  • New investable fixed income solutions including passive strategies
