Bond Investments in a Rising Interest Rate Environment


Frequent headlines over the last few months reference two similar messages: “Death of the 60/40 Portfolio” and “Higher Rates Spell Inflation Doom.” Both warnings are about our current environment of rising interest rates and lower investment expectations for bond investments.

In this episode, Jay Pluimer discusses the outlook for bond prices over the next few years and what it could mean for investor portfolios.
