Fixed Income Summit

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - Chicago

Thursday, May 15, 2014 - New York City

Increased credit risk is at the forefront of bond investors’ minds with expected interest-rate hikes likely to take place in the near future. With so many portfolios focused on preserving capital over the past several years, fixed income allocations have been on the increase despite low returns. Is it time to rebalance before the shift in fixed income occurs? Should fixed income still play a part in the majority of portfolios? These are crucial questions that P&I’s Fixed Income Summit will address where top industry experts will weigh in on key areas for creating robust risk-adjusted returns.

Over the same time period, however, China’s domestic equity performance has declined nearly 60%, placing Chinese equity valuations at historical lows. Please join Frank Yao, Senior Portfolio Manager of the Neuberger Berman Greater China Investment Team, and Joseph Amato, President and Chief Investment Officer of Neuberger Berman, who will be discussing the reasons behind this phenomenon and potential catalysts for China equity.
