It’s important to understand that fixed income markets offer a wide range of investment opportunities for your portfolio, whether you need income and/or growth. Fixed income securities can be issued by many different entities, including various levels of government and corporations, both domestic and global.

These instruments can vary widely in terms of their risk and return characteristics, and how they respond to changes in the level of, and outlook for, interest rates. Professional investment managers are able to combine different securities to achieve specific objectives, like delivering a relatively high level of regular, predictable income.

As highlighted below, no single fixed income category has led in performance all of the time, so it’s important to include a broad cross-section of different types of securities in your portfolio.
