The Great Financial Crisis was more than a decade ago. Its aftermath has been a tale of low yields in the bond market for a very long time. But that's changed. As central banks respond to inflation with higher interest rates, they have created opportunities for higher yields in the bond market. Benjamin Chim, who leads the High Yield Fixed Income Team and is a portfolio manager responsible for active retail and institutional fixed income portfolios, believes interest rates may stay elevated for longer. And this makes it an opportune time for investors to diversify their portfolios and generate positive returns using fixed income investments.
