    Welcome to the New and More Volatile Inflation Regime

    Welcome to the New and More Volatile Inflation Regime

    Just a few months ago, US inflation levels hit the highest levels seen since the 1990s. Now the level is higher than at any point in the past 40 years, eclipsing many of our careers in the investment industry. Such a drastic shift in a short space of time requires professional investors to reshape their portfolios in response to the new landscape, but which assets are best suited to high and rising inflation, and which to an environment where inflation has peaked and begins falling again?
    Teun Draaisma, portfolio manager at Man Solutions, and his team been developing a robust quantitative investment framework – Fire and Ice – around inflation for the past five years. Recently winning the prestigious Bernstein Fabozzi Jacobs Awards for their co-authored paper The Best Strategies for Inflationary Times, Teun joins Shanta Puchtler to discuss the strategies that work when inflation hits.

    In the debut episode of Long Story Short, portfolio manager Jonathan Golan joins the podcast to discuss the outlook for investment grade fixed income, the search for yield and the key risks investors should watch out for.
