Research Insights The Search for Yield and Negative Rates
Investors in high-quality, fixed income securities have been battling the low interest rate environment ever since the start of the financial crisis in 2008. Just as recently as a few years ago, market experts expected rates in the U.S. and abroad to trend back to long-term averages. So far that prediction has not come to fruition. In fact, most of the developed world seems to be in a race to the bottom of interest rate lows.
