Watch the webinar replay

About the session

Fixed income is back in vogue, with experts spotlighting bonds as a key asset class with a better returns outlook on a risk-reward basis.

But with the uncertain interest rate path ahead as markets digest cooling inflation out of the US, does the strong conviction over bonds still hold true? How should investors position themselves for the rest of the year to generate steady income through bond investing?

Endowus warmly invites you to an exclusive webinar in partnership with J.P. Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM), a leading fund manager in the fixed income space. Join Endowus as we speak with JPMAM to discuss:

  • Is fixed income or equities a better place to be in H2 2023?
  • Is this just a pause before further rate hikes?
  • Is a recession a certainty and how bad will it be?
  • When will the Fed start cutting rates and does it matter?
  • Where are the best opportunities in fixed income and bond investing?

There will be a Q&A session at the end of the session. Submit your questions ahead of time here.
