A multi-income journey into the emerging high-yield potential
Income investors like us have stayed the course as we ride through the four seasons. Where do we see income opportunities?
1st competitive factor: easing policies3
The public health crisis has disrupted economic activities globally, and governments and central banks have continued to respond with massive monetary and fiscal stimulus to support businesses and labour markets. As easing polices are here to stay, policy rates will be lower for longer, bolstering Asia’s bond markets.
2nd competitive factor: compelling income potential
Government bond yields across Asia and major developed markets4
3rd competitive factor: relatively mild inflation supports further easing
Consumer Price Index and Producer Price Index inflation5
