Talking Credit - latest update from Invesco's fixed income team
Our summer edition of ‘Talking Credit’ provides the latest views and insights from the Henley Fixed Interest team.
The result of the UK’s referendum on its future membership of the EU has left us facing an uncertain outlook.
- Currency and fixed income markets have experienced real turbulence this year
- Credit markets staged a recovery after the ECB revealed plans to start buying corporate bonds
- How have markets been affected by Europe’s bond-buying spree?
It’s been a period of real turbulence in currency and fixed income markets this year. By mid-February you may have wondered just how far markets could fall. However, from that point commodity markets recovered somewhat and with the European Central Bank’s announcement of plans to start buying corporate bonds, credit markets recovered quite sharply.
“Although the initial reaction in credit markets has been quite contained, it does feel like the beginning rather than the end of this story.”
