Fixed Income

To develop our fixed income Baseline return expectations, we start with current yields and apply our judgment about the future direction of interest rates (returns are today's yield + changes in price and income over time). We develop a cyclical view of interest based upon sustainable levels given our growth, inflation, and cash projections. 

Outside of the US, most developed markets are still under a very low interest rate regime with real rates negative in many markets. This, of course, augurs for low returns. Further undermining returns is that we project yield increases across most markets.
