All eyes are on interest rates as we begin a new year. How quickly might the Federal Reserve raise interest rates and taper its asset purchases, and how much might this dampen the bond markets and markets overall? Are investors’ fears of higher inflation well-founded and which fixed income asset classes are best positioned for gains in 2022?

Join us for exclusive insights from Ellen Safir, founder and Chief Investment Officer of New Century Advisors (NCA), where she is responsible for the firm’s overall investment and business strategies. An early adopter of TIPS, she has helped advance the firm's reputation as an expert in inflation-linked securities. Her expertise includes high-yield and emerging markets as well as traditional fixed income sectors.
