Fixed income markets have undergone significant structural change since the 2008 financial crisis. These seismic shifts are forcing investors to adapt to a new market paradigm that will challenge not only how they trade fixed income, but what types of products they use to build bond portfolios and manage risk.
In this Session, our speakers will examine the evolution of the bond market through three interconnected lenses: the liquidity environment, market structure and product preferences. All three are changing in the post-crisis era with implications for the shape of the future bond market and investors.

- Is the current market volatility conducive for investors to take a lot of risks?
- What do all these mean for the broad dollar trend and will dollar appreciation continue?
- With rate hikes affecting bond portfolios negatively, how can you better safe guard your portfolios and returns?
- Has quantitative easing ruined the investor landscape and will there be a further tightening of monetary policy by central banks?
- We are already in the QE tightening phase - when will the tide turn and after all these rate hikes the fed has to come back and reflect how it has impacted the asset markets?
- When does the quantitative tightening end and what are the drivers that will end the quantitative tightening
- What is the portfolio positioning once quantitative tightening ends and how will investors perceive on the duration risks?
