Minerd on WealthTrack: Fixed Income Strategy in a Negative Rate World

Scott Minerd, Chairman of Investments and Global CIO, discusses challenges and opportunities in today’s market with WealthTrack’s Consuelo Mack.

“The Fed is now hostage to the markets,” Minerd warned Mack as they discussed market challenges and opportunities on a recent edition of PBS' WealthTrack. “The problem is that as central banks around the world keep searching for new ways to stimulate the economy, it’s creating imbalances, so we’re slowly seeing asset classes get inflated.”

For investors, this dynamic creates an unusual conundrum: Where to find assets that represent value given the heightened risk inherent in a global economy awash in manipulated liquidity. In the following video series, including highlights from the interview, Minerd shares insights on how careful security selection and a disciplined approach to investing can help steer investors through challenging market conditions.

In the long run there are certainly issues to be sorted through—not just the practical aspects of the new relationship between the U.K. and the E.U., but also whether the E.U. and the euro will ultimately survive.
