J.P. Morgan Asset Management Thought for the Month – building stronger liquidity strategies – let's solve it.

September 2015

Rising rate environments can challenge even the most sophisticated fixed income investor. So, with UK and US interest rates poised to rise from levels that are near their all-time lows, treasurers must be prepared – and take the time to reassess their bond portfolios. For example, bonds with shorter maturities, floating interest rates and/or higher yields should experience less dramatic price declines and may be better suited to meeting companies’ liquidity needs over the coming months.

As our latest Liquidity Insights whitepaper explains, during periods of rising interest rates and stable credit conditions, investors can improve the total return of their bond portfolios by shifting into shorter duration and higher-income-generating strategies. The paper also highlights how a study of past rising rate cycles and dynamic scenario analysis of potential future rate moves can provide a valuable perspective to an investor managing liquidity through a rising rate environment.
