Fixed income markets: when short term pain can bring long term gains

2022 has not been a great time for bonds. Year-to-date, the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Index and Bloomberg US Treasury Index returned-20% and -13%, respectively. 1 Meanwhile,risky asset classesalso sold off significantly, whichhas led to many investors questioningthe role of bonds as a diversifier to equities. While we acknowledge the frustration and the stress investors face in such a volatile market environment,it is important to avoid acting on impulse. Instead, investors should reflect on recent events to understand what has caused this massive drawdown in markets and then act accordingly by positioning their portfolios for the current economic backdrop. As always, it is important to take a long term view.
