Update on Public Fixed Income Markets

Mar. 11, 2020

The first quarter of 2020 has been challenging to say the least. The global spread of the COVID-19 virus has disrupted supply chains and instilled fear of a broad slowdown in growth. Further, the March 3rd  50 basis point cut in the Fed Funds rate did little to sooth the markets which reacted even more severely a week later as Russia decided to opt out of deeper OPEC+ production cuts and Saudi Arabia slash edits oil prices staging a price war; once again driving equities lower, credit spreads wider and Treasury yields to historical lows. The markets remain extremely volatile and we are monitoring portfolios very closely to ensure each is positioned to weather future volatility.
