Finding Income Amid Global Price Plunges

What’s not to like about falling prices? For one thing, it’s the fear that a long-term decline in financial assets will have businesses and consumers in a vicious cycle that leads to even lower prices and the destruction of demand. Japan witnessed such an occurrence in the early 1990s and every bump in the global economic recovery stokes similar fears in investors. Amid such an environment, some investors have sought longer-term bonds and related ETFs to lock in a fixed interest rate while stabilizing the relative risk of re-investment.[2] If demand for long-term bonds increases with higher deflationary expectations, so may the prices of long-term bonds and related ETFs. This motif provides exposure to ETFs holding long-duration US Treasury, municipal and investment-grade corporate bonds. See more
