Higher-Duration Assets Tend to Outperform After Tail End of Rate Hike Cycles
With the Fed’s tightening cycle likely ending soon, now may be a good time for investors to extend duration in their portfolios.
Intermediate Core-Plus Bonds invest primarily in investment-grade U.S. fixed-income issues including government, corporate, and securitized debt, but generally have greater flexibility than core offerings to hold non-core sectors such as corporate high yield, bank loan, emerging-markets debt, and non-U.S. currency exposures.
Investing involves risks. Some investments are riskier than others. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than the original cost.
