Private assets and alternative investments are usually illiquid in nature but can help an investor meet their long-term objectives in a more efficient manner.
Some investors are considering making tactical tilts to their fixed income portfolios to take advantage of the current high-yield environment.
The U.S. Treasury yield curve is currently inverted, with yields on short-term bonds higher than yields on longer-term bonds. Some expect this to unwind with short-term bond yields falling faster than longer-term yields. Amid these expectations, those investors are wondering if they should consider reallocating to shorter-term bonds.
Over the past two years, higher inflation has led to a higher return hurdle for investors who have established real return objectives, making it harder for them to achieve their return objectives over the short term. But is this likely to be the case over the long term as well?
