Fixed Income TeamTalk Podcast: The recent government bond sell-off

In the third of their regular podcasts this year, our Fixed Income Team discuss the recent sell-off in government bonds in many developed countries:

Government bonds: With central banks and governments committed to stimulus, does the sell-off represent a good buying opportunity or should investors tread carefully?

Corporate bonds: With government bond yields moving higher, how do corporate bond valuations stack up? Is this the time to add risk or an early warning sign of bigger problems to come?

Asia Pacific fixed income: With this region covering a vast number of countries and economic hubs, what is the impact of higher sovereign bond yields in the developed world? And are there any specific areas investors should be considering?

on today's podcast we'll be discussing the recent sell-off in government bonds and whether this is an opportunity or a concern for investors.
