Don’t Panic About Your Bonds!
Seven years ago, when we wrote a white paper on rising rate environments and the potential effect on fixed income portfolios (Don’t Panic About Your Bonds, April
2005), popular opinion assumed that Treasury yields were going to rise substantially given their low values relative to historical levels. Instead, after a quick pick up
through February 2007, yields have fallen to even lower values. Instead of increasing as many expected, current yields are at their lowest levels in over 60 years! As a
result of such low yields, many are again speculating that future bond rates will rise and returns will inevitably turn negative.
