After more than a decade of very low and even negative interest rates, the horizon has cleared for bonds and yields have become attractive once again. The gradual fall in Eurozone inflation has enabled the European Central Bank to start cutting its interest rates. What consequences for investors and what strategy should they adopt?

Marie-Anne Allier and Aymeric Guedy, co-Fund Managers of Carmignac Sécurité, explain the impact of current market conditions on the Fund, and describe their positioning for the quarters ahead:

With a yield to maturity of 4.7% today, versus 3.2% for its reference indicator1, the Fund is very well positioned to generate positive performance with managed volatility over the coming quarters and years.

Key points:

Bonds are returning to grace

Bonds made a comeback in late 2023 and stuck around in 2024, with yields not seen for decades. We are now in a cycle of interest rate cuts by central banks, but it does not mark the end of attractive yields on European fixed income markets.

Performance drivers for the coming quarters

Carry will be one of the main performance drivers. One of our strongest convictions is for credit. We are also actively managing interest rate risk so that we can adapt our position and navigate an environment that remains volatile.
