INFLATION-HEDGED BONDS (Published Date :4/3/2014)

Category :Asia,Global
Inflation is back, it seems – and with it, inflation-hedged bonds. Of course, the just over 2% inflation range that the US seems on course for is nothing like the Great Inflation of the 1970s, with its peak US inflation rate of around 14%, and seems in no danger of heralding a round of stagflation, with the American economy apparently reflating nicely. But nonetheless it is real, and investors have to adjust allocations accordingly

Inflation expectations have been oddly disoriented during 2013. Quantitative easing (QE) did not stoke inflation as predicted, though there are plenty of commentators who have argued that its reflationary effects helped offset the strong deflationary risks in developed economies
