In major economies inflation is approaching double figures and already setting 40-year, or more, highs. This wasn’t supposed to happen but the reality is that it is. In this episode, David Parsons and David Lloyd discuss the once comfortable coalition between central bankers and politicians, the prospect of achieving positive real returns and how fixed income can mitigate the cost of de-risking.

Host: David Parsons, Head – Public Debt Investment Specialist Team

Speaker: David Lloyd, Deputy Chief Investment Officer – Public Fixed Income
