Many cross currents are running through the bond market, including reduced expectations for economic growth, the end of QE2, downgrades to sovereign debt, the debt ceiling and concerns about inflation. It has also resulted in a lack of consensus within the investment community. BlackRock and PIMCO's biggest fund managers have taken different views regarding how the bond market will fare after QE2. Our distinguished panelists from Barclays Capital, BlackRock, PIMCO and UC Regents will present their outlooks on the fixed income market. The presentation will include an opportunity for audience Q & A.
• Dean Maki, Ph.D., Managing Director and Chief US Economist, Barclays Capital
• Rick Rieder, Chief Investment Officer of Fundamental Fixed Income Portfolios, BlackRock
• Scott Simon, Managing Director and Head of the Mortgage- and Asset-Backed Securities Teams, PIMCO
• Randy Wedding, Senior Managing Director, Fixed Income, Office of the Treasurer, UC Regents
