Hunt for Yield

Key Takeaways

  • Global fixed income has had a strong year in 2019, and yields are close to record lows, but Citi analysts believe that there are still opportunities in selective markets.
  • High quality longer duration bond exposures (5-10 years) are favored to balance risks, preferably in US Investment Grade (IG) corporates. Citi analysts continue to stay constructive on US financials and defensives – such as utilities – as a hedge against any potential drawdown in risk assets.
  • USD-denominated Emerging Market Debt (EMD) offers some of the best relative value in global fixed income and Citi analysts see opportunities in Asian High Yield (HY) corporates, particularly in the Chinese property sector.
