Fixed income

May 2022.

This month, the nature of the downdraft in markets gives us a good opportunity to revisit the portfolio construction theme. While the markets deserve their splatter of pixels (which we give briefly in the market recap), we focus on the fixed income portion of the portfolio.

Given we are seeing the worst drawdown in bonds in decades, we will review why we own bonds, what value they add to a portfolio, and what factors go into selecting the portfolio components.
