Global Interest Rates Trending Higher

    Rising interest rates and tighter monetary policies seem likely to remain key developments in the short-term for the global economy. The United States (US) Federal Reserve, in particular, remains positioned to gradually increase interest rates with at least one more rate hike anticipated this year. Meanwhile other major Central Banks such as the European Central Bank and Bank of England are seemingly gearing to end their accommodative policy measures by year-end, which have previously reinforced low interest rates. With the possibility of higher rates and the likelihood of this to trigger a fall in bond prices (yields increase), we believe investors should favor positioning the exposure of their fixed income portfolios to shorter-duration bonds (i.e. bonds with a shorter term to maturity) to protect against interest rate volatility.
