Understanding Fixed Income Markets

Teresa Kong, CFA, Portfolio Manager

June 24, 2014
Teresa Kong, CFA, Portfolio Manager, discusses the impact of a rising interest rate environment in Asia, and the importance of looking for relative value across currencies and capital structures for investment opportunities in the region.

Fixed income investments are subject to additional risks, including, but not limited to, interest rate, credit and inflation risks. As interest rates rise the value of bond prices will decline. The Fund may invest in more aggressive investments such as derivatives, (futures, options, swaps) and high yield debt (also known as junk bonds) all of which may cause greater volatility and less liquidity. Derivatives may be more sensitive to changes in market conditions and may amplify risks.
