Multi-asset managers offer propositions such as ‘equity returns with two thirds of the volatility’. Bonds form a significant part of their diversifying non-equity holdings. Now starting yields are low. 10 year US Treasuries , 10 year gilts and global aggregate ETFs (bonds roughly evenly weighted from AAA to BBB) yield 2.3%, 1.1% and 2% respectively. With these as starting yields fund firms cannot expect a repeat of recent returns. So, to achieve higher returns more firms may be looking to support derivatives for relative value bond trades.
