What to do now? Balancing Income Generation and Rising Interest Rate Concerns Amid Deepening Uncertainty
In this webinar, Matthew Freund, CFA®, will discuss how to position against current market dynamics—low yields, the potential for interest rates to head higher, and the rapid rebound in equities. He will provide USAA's perspective based on its 43-year history of performance born from discipline and military values.
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. Lower-quality fixed income securities involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, and economic risks. Any fixed-income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
