Who’s Afraid of the Inverted Yield Curve? – Allianz – 10.3.18


Now On Demand.

As the gap between short and long-term yield remains narrow, there is growing noise about what happens if and when we see an inverted yield curve. Does this mean a recession is on the horizon? Should the Federal Reserve revisit its schedule of rate increases to head this off?

Or, could history be a misguided measure of what a potential inverted yield curve truly means in this uncharted post-quantitative easing market environment.

This webcast will explore:

  • Emerging developments shaping the outlook for fixed income markets
  • Yield curve tightening: precursor to recession?
  • Portfolio implications and actionable fixed income strategies to help asset allocators maximize the opportunity in this unprecedented environment
