Federated believes that optimum results in fixed-income products are best achieved through a traditional value-based approach, using fundamental analysis with teams focused by sector to extract value from each step of the process. Join R.J. Gallo as he covers Federated’s take on the fixed-income landscape and reviews what opportunities lie ahead for investors
In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk, and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
