Taking balanced risks amid a resilient macroeconomic backdrop

  • Stronger economic data in the US drove investors to recalibrate expectations for Federal Reserve (Fed) interest rate cuts in 2024, pushing Treasury yields higher in the first quarter.
  • Growth is diverging across regions, a trend we expect will persist going forward.
  • Most central banks have likely concluded their rate-hiking cycles and their next move may be to cut interest rates, but the timing and extent of cuts remain highly uncertain.
  • Fixed income valuations largely reflect a soft landing, and we are looking to construct portfolios that reflect balanced risks across excess return drivers and diverse macroeconomic outcomes.
  • Our highest conviction ideas call for a steepening of the yield curve and positions in agency mortgage-backed securities and credit sectors.
