Join Steven Friedman and Cedric Scholtes for the 15 March webcast

The prospects for higher US inflation appear stronger now than at any other point in the period since the Great Financial Crisis. Even before the recent, surprisingly buoyant, data on wages and consumer price inflation as well as the news of further US government fiscal stimulus, there had been indications that US inflation would make progress toward the Federal Reserve’s 2% target level.

Inflation pressures were seen coming from market expectations of stronger economic growth, at least partly due to the near-term effects of the tax cuts, continued accommodative financial conditions, a further strengthening in the labour market and a weaker US dollar.

In this 30-minute webcast, Steven Friedman, senior economist, and Cedric Scholtes, head of US inflation-linked bond portfolios, will discuss their outlook on US inflation and the implications for the inflation-linked bond market with investment specialist Katie Herr.

Join Steven and Cedric as they cover these questions:

  • What are the factors contributing to rising inflation?
  • What is our base case for US inflation in 2018/2019?
  • What are the upside and downside risks?
  • How can fixed-income investors prepare?
  • What are the implications for the US inflation-linked bond market?
