Exploring the realities and myths of fixed income

Join American Funds as we discuss the role of fixed income in your portfolio.

Tuesday, March 19, 2019
Noon – 1:00 p.m. ET

How can I separate myths from reality when it comes to fixed-income investing? Does a rising Fed funds rate translate to negative bond returns? Should I focus more on interest rate risk than credit risk? Does it pay to be overweight in high-yield credit? Will my bond portfolio behave like I expect it to? Am I exposed to unintended risks? This presentation will address these questions, in addition to providing perspective on the macro environment and the four key roles of fixed income in your portfolio.
