Andrew Lake, fund manager of Mirabaud Global Strategic Bond Fund, talks about Mirabaud’s global fixed income capability and how he and his team are finding credit opportunities in a low-growth environment.
He outlines Mirabaud’s current portfolio positioning in a world affected by geopolitical events and interest rate differentials between the U.S. and Europe.
He also examines the impact of an extended credit cycle, some of the headwinds his portfolio has faced over the last year, and why investors should still consider seeking opportunities in the bond market despite historically low yields.
Andrew spoke with Jake Moeller, Head of Lipper U.K. & Ireland Research in London on May 8, 2017.
