Interest rate risk: "Why?" and "What to do?"

Are you worried about rising interest rates? Manage interest rate risk, not duration.

A holistic portfolio approach
• Current level of interest rates calls for owning less fixed income than normal
• Prospect of rising rates is good for investors long-term, perhaps not this year
• Slashing fixed income duration can be counterproductive

A place for everything, and everything in its place
• Reducing interest rate risk in portfolios is worthwhile short term
• Can be accomplished by holding less rate-sensitive fixed income
• Options: credit, equities, direct real estate
