European banks unjustly tainted by reputation

In our Insights publication, portfolio manager Christian Bettinger provides interesting insights into the European banking sector and shows how flexible fixed income approaches in particular can exploit opportunities in volatile market phases.

Bond investors currently need nerves of steel: persistently high inflationary pressure, rising yields and the Russia-Ukraine conflict have been weighing on the prices of fixed income securities since the beginning of the year. At the same time, the combination of high input costs and still-disrupted supply chains threatens to spoil companies’ quarterly results. In this publication, we examine the extent to which European banks are affected and demonstrate that it is well worth taking a closer look at bonds from banks.
