How should fixed income investors ‘play it safe’ as uncertainty looms?

Karsten Bierre, lead portfolio manager at Nordea Multi Asset Funds, discusses how investors can play fixed income markets in times of uncertainty. Bierre tells Fund Strategy that investors have been entering the illiquid space in order to get the levels of returns they would have previously found in liquid debt. He also notes that investors at the moment seem to be more concerned about low government bond yields than about tight credit spreads.
