The bond age and investor masochism

By John Roe

With bond yields continuing to fall, it’s been painful for investors who’ve bet against them.

However, even with German sovereign yields below zero and far lower than in the US, there are still reasons to prefer them. We explain why in this vlog.

With failed football dreams behind him, John applies the same level of enthusiasm to investing and how to improve outcomes by battling behavioural biases. He leads on oil research, but also gets involved in a wide range of macro topics. That love of variety also explains his craft beer fascination. Hard to shut up, he’s a regular guest on Bloomberg, a conference speaker and an LGIM Director. His analytical thinking benefits from being an Actuary with an economics degree and having previously worked as a strategist at RBS.
