    Tim Hext: Why bonds still look better than term deposits

    Tim Hext: Why bonds still look better than term deposits

    Have investors missed the boat on bonds after they touched 5% in October?

    No, says Pendal’s head of bond strategies Tim Hext. In this latest Pendal fast podcast he explains why.

    "When I look across the spectrum of what you can buy in bonds, government bonds are around 4.5%, state government bonds 5.25% and bank debt around 6%.

    "On term deposits, my question to investors would be: Okay, let's assume term deposits are at 5% and you're locking yourself into those with no liquidity.

    "Where do you think on average they're going to be over the next five or 10 years?"

    "I think most people would assume they're going to be a little bit lower, not higher; and that cash rates will come down rather than go up a lot more.

    "And yet, right now you can lock in, for five or 10 years, rates above 5% in bonds.

    "The other advantage of bonds is that they're liquid.

    "You can sell them anytime. You're not locked up like you are in a term deposit.

    "That's particularly important, that if you saw a sudden sharp sell-off in equities and you're wanting to buy them — but your money's locked up in term deposits."

    Bonds offer returns and cheap insurance right now: Tim Hext

    Bonds offer returns and cheap insurance right now: Tim Hext

    US and local bond yields are hitting multi-year highs. Why is it happening and what’s next?

    Resilience in the US economy is the main factor, says Pendal’s head of bond strategies Tim Hext.

    That’s due to the dominance of fixed-rate loans there and Joe Biden's big-spending government.

    Meanwhile the Australian economy is holding up better than expected and the fixed-rate cliff hasn’t impacted as much as people thought.

    Bond investors should reward investors in two ways, argues Tim: the return and the insurance role.

    “If things were to get out of hand, if you get a collapse in equities, if you see major geopolitical disruptions in this heightened risk environment, then bonds should perform their defensive role. I do think they’re cheap insurance.”

    Why China is hesitating on stimulus – and what’s likely to happen next

    Why China is hesitating on stimulus – and what’s likely to happen next

    China’s political and economic outlook has a huge impact on Australian investors. In this new podcast, Pendal’s head of income strategies AMY XIE PATRICK explains the latest.

    An excerpt:

    Why doesn’t Beijing pump stimulus into the Chinese economy as other countries do?

    “We have to remember that the Chinese political system is not a democratic system, and its principles are very socialist at heart,” says Pendal’s head of income strategies, Amy Xie Patrick.

    “A very classic characterisation of the Chinese style of socialism is they don't believe in ‘helicopter money’.

    "They believe money going directly into people's pockets isn't the way to common prosperity. Instead, everyone should toil in order to achieve that prosperity.

    However, now we're reaching a point where the drag from the Chinese property story is so severe that they kind of have to choose a lesser of two evils.

    ...I think the government is on the cusp of considering more direct-to-consumer stimulus, at least just to keep the current positive momentum going for China."

    It's 'so far, so good' on rates and the economy. But what's next?

    It's 'so far, so good' on rates and the economy. But what's next?

    You’re probably thinking “so far, so good” on rate rises and the economy.

    No evidence yet of a sharp slow-down and fixed mortgage holders seem to be adjusting ok to higher rates, partly due to strong employment.

    But we're only halfway through the six-month fixed-rate cliff period, points out Pendal’s head of government bond strategies TIM HEXT in this latest fast podcast.

    “It's definitely too early to say there hasn't been any significant damage,” Tim says.

    What’s next then?

    Find out in this fast podcast.
