Inflation - is it real?

Inflation - is it real?

August 9, 2021

From the ‘Great Moderation’ of the 1980’s, to the current day, the inflation environment has been relatively benign, with the policies of recent years mostly concerned with preventing deflation. However, as economies begin to rebound from the Covid crisis, inflation has ticked up. Is the current rise in inflation transitory, or could we see Central banks move to tighten policy? David Parsons and David Lloyd walk through the history of what has led us to this point and what to look out for.

Sustainability in private credit - can the two go hand in hand?

Sustainability in private credit - can the two go hand in hand?

June 25, 2021

While sustainability has been most obviously implemented within public markets, appetite from investors to access private market opportunities has grown. With fewer disclosure requirements, and challenges in providing tangible evidence and data that prove the sustainability of business operations, can allocations to private credit be coherent with a desire to increase sustainability in investment? Catherine Ross and Fiona Hagdrup sit down to explore the compatibility of these two investment aims.

The folly of forecasting - finding value in an uncertain world

The folly of forecasting - finding value in an uncertain world

May 11, 2021
There has been significant positive momentum in credit markets since the Covid crisis began, underpinned by unprecedented levels of government and central bank support. However, despite market expectations of a sharp rebound in economic activity, there remain significant risks to this view. Notably, what happens as the stimulus packages are wound down - how will markets respond? What does the structure of markets tell us about the underlying risks? In this episode, David Parsons is joined by Richard Ryan to talk about the current issues in fixed income markets and the cyclical nature of markets.
 

Host: David Parsons, Head of the Public Debt Investment Specialist Team
