How To Pick Your Strategic Bond Fund

WEBINAR: While we sit out the eye of the economic storm, OBSR assesses the fixed income market and the liquidity issues hampering strategic bond funds

Are we in 2008 again? What are asset prices reflecting? And why have some strategic bond funds not performed as expected? Peter Toogood, head of investment services, and Gill Hutchison, head of investment consultancy at OBSR, a Morningstar company look to answer these questions as they take a look at the fixed income markets.

In this webinar, Hutchison and Toogood address some of the difficulties in the credit markets and some of the surprises in the government bond markets. In doing so they also assess where we are in the economic cycle--the eye of the storm? and shine a spotlight on the strategic bond fund sector--in which investors may be wondering why their funds haven't performed quite as expected.
