5 Things About Amar

1

He is an avid history buff and recently spent a birthday trekking across the battlefield at Gettysburg.

2

By making lots of mistakes, he has evolved into a passable cook. He wants to continue to take time to learn and hone his skills in the kitchen. 

3

A new resident of Providence, Rhode Island, he loves the sights, food, and events of the Ocean State.

4

He relaxes by spending time with his family and very fluffy dog, Toffee. If he wasn’t on the road so much, his wife says there would be a danger of them having a dozen dogs and substantially more dog toys.

5

His go-to gift for someone is an old book, hunted down at a collection or second hand bookstore, on a topic or hobby that’s important to them.

amar's Insights

Yields also reacted to the the anticipated inflationary impact of China reopening and the repricing of higher-for-longer Federal Reserve policy rates.
Most global sovereign yields fell sharply, and fixed-income spreads continued to compress following a partial easing of COVID lockdown restrictions in China. They were also supported by a dearth of new issuance, particularly among higher-yielding sectors.
With the end of the low-inflation era, expect seismic shifts in the economic landscape.
Most fixed-income spread sectors posted positive excess returns, supported by UK political stability, declining gas prices in Europe, and a shift in expectations away from rapid interest rate hikes by major central banks.
Although the word “unprecedented” is overused, there’s no other word to describe what fixed-income investors have experienced this year. Managing Director at Wellington Management and Fixed-Income Strategist for Hartford Funds, Amar Reganti, shares his thoughts on the past year and where fixed-income goes from here.
