Why Bonds?

From the global pandemic to the large number of natural disasters around the world, 2020 was a tough year.

Will 2021 spark another flight to safety?
With interest rates set to remain ultra-low, inflation weak and post-COVID-19 economic growth uneven, bond investors may be forgiven for expecting more of the same in 2021. But not all parts of the fixed-income landscape are on the same track.

Senior Portfolio Specialists Nick Macrina will discuss portfolio implications in the current market environment, share trends, and give actionable ideas relevant to your practice.

This event is FREE.
