Domestic tailwinds turning to headwinds whilst Global Data is decaying

Inflows into fixed income globally have surged back this year, clocking in over $200BLN year to date according to various JCB contacts on global fixed income desks. The last time we saw inflows greater than this magnitude were 2009 and 2010 in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. JCB continue to believe that investors need to be diversifying away from left tail risk like events given current macro economic and political backdrop.

JCB believes than an active approach to Australian 'high grade bonds' is a prudent way to navigate such a defensive asset class within a diversified portfolio.
