The World is Not Enough: How Investors Should Approach an Evolving Bond Market

Session Speakers
Session Description

Why Attend
Help investors learn how to avoid surprises in their bond portfolios by better understanding the evolution of bonds, how they’ve been defined and redefined, and the role of various bond types in asset allocation.

Session Details
“Bond. James Bond.” With these words, you can precisely define the character of the iconic protagonist. But, the exact identity and nature of investment bonds has changed markedly over time. The number of bonds has grown, their duration lengthened as investors search for yield, and their investment grade and return potential divvied up. Even the definition of an international bond was obscured when non-U.S. entities hopped aboard the bond train. We’ve now come full circle with investments in “stocks and bonds.” Learn how the evolution of this asset, while positive, requires investors to approach their bond portfolios with their eyes wide open to avoid surprises.    

This 30-minute session is scheduled to take place on The Exchange showcase stage. After the session, continue the conversation by visiting the Schwab Center or BMO Global Asset Management on the Exchange floor.   

Seating for this session is at capacity, however standing room is still available.
