9:35 – 10:25 – Customizing Your Fixed Income Portfolio In A World On “Fed Alert”

With the Federal Reserve pursuing a gradual – but continuous – path of interest rate hikes, our panelists will discuss which ETF strategies offer investors capital preservation – and perhaps some alpha too – when most traditional bond investments decline in value. European and Japanese monetary policy will also be discussed, along with recent volatility in the Chinese Yuan.
