Fixed-Income Outlook: Identifying Relative Value Across U.S. Fixed-Income Market Sectors

In our new quarterly publication, the leaders of our fixed-income investment team discuss relative value and outlook in current market conditions.

March 17, 2016


Report Highlights

  • Volatility in global equities and credit markets has rattled investors, but we do not believe the factors roiling the markets will derail the ongoing U.S. expansion.
  • The decline in oil prices may be helping consumers, but, as our sector managers relate throughout this report, it has taken a toll on corporate credit. An important input to our credit view, however, is our Macroeconomic Research Team’s analysis showing that oil prices should rise towards $40 per barrel in 2016 as global supply and demand rebalance.
  • The Macroeconomic Research Team’s constructive outlook on the U.S. economy also supports our positive view on selected credit sectors and non-Agency residential mortgage-backed securities.
  • Recent spread widening across several areas of the ABS market, particularly in post-crisis mezzanine CLOs, creates a compelling entry point.
  • The Fixed-Income Outlook highlights the breadth, depth, and process of our fixed-income investment team.
