The Impact Of Today's Low-Interest Rate Environment On Investors
In response to the global COVID-19 recession, central banks across the world unleashed synchronized monetary stimulus to backstop the economy.With the lack of inflation pressure, and higher tolerance for inflation overshoots, central banks globally are likely to keep interest rates low for a long time.Today’s low-interest rate environment creates some challenges for investors looking for adequate returns through bonds, but great opportunities for borrowers and equity investors.

The Market Is Pricing A Biden Win: Dillian
Investors whose sole focus is on returns fail because they don’t structure a portfolio that properly accounts for risk.Growth in America has been going down over time, due in part to both demographics and regulation; going forward, we’re unlikely to see GDP numbers above 3%.We can’t see what’s on the other side of the election, and two weeks from now things could be different, but right now, the market is pricing a Biden win.

We like higher-yielding credit amid low rates, and see corporate restructurings offering growth and potential return diversification for private credit investors.A pickup in COVID-19 cases may weigh on mobility and activity in the near term, but we see this wave of infections as much shallower than the spring one.A spate of purchasing managers’ index data this week could shed light on any potential impact that increased virus infections has had on activity.

The Central Bank Watch
The central banks have increased their assets by 38.5% in the last twelve months, which has had a profound effect on both the bond and equity markets globally.They have pushed down interest rates for their nations, in an attempt to control the debt of their respective governments, as all of the governments borrowed more and more money to support their economies during the pandemic.The ECB and the BOJ have pushed their yields below the once-unthinkable line of zero. The Fed may also be motivated into negative interest rates if the Democrats win the upcoming US elections.

MacroView: Recessions Are A Good Thing, Let Them Happen
While recessions, like forest fires, have terrible short-term impacts, they also allow the system to reset for healthier growth in the future.When credit creation is no longer sustainable, the markets must clear the excesses before the cycle can restart.What the Federal Reserve has failed to grasp is that monetary policy is "deflationary" when "debt" is required to fund it.With each monetary policy intervention, money velocity has slowed along with the breadth and economic activity strength.We should embrace "Recessions." Allow recessions to clear the "excesses" accrued during the first half of the economic growth cycle.

Healing But Hurting: An Ailing Labor Market Is Stalling
Despite record monthly job growth this spring and summer, we have recovered only half of the lost jobs lost during the frenetic initial weeks of the pandemic.The jobs recovery is stalling as “temporary” furloughs convert into permanent job losses, hiring slows, new claims for unemployment remain stubbornly high, and more layoffs loom.The gathering headwinds suggest that the recovery will slow further or even reverse absent another round of robust government stimulus.Regardless, a full jobs recovery will take at least until early 2022. Most likely, it will take considerably longer.
