An LSEG report in partnership with WIRED that explores the macro trends impacting investor behaviour and preferences for fixed income.

Fixed income future trends with WIRED


The global fixed income market saw sharp growth over 2020, with issuance surging by 19.9% to $27.3tn, and global bond markets’ outstanding value increasing by 16.5% to $123tn. Yet despite this rapid expansion, the segment as a whole has been buffeted by waves of change, including pandemic-related volatility, the rise of emerging markets, a fast-approaching tipping-point for sustainable finance and tech-driven transformation.

In this special report in partnership with WIRED, find out:

- How investors have moved into emerging and frontier markets in the quest for yield.
- How climate change and other social considerations have influenced investor preferences.
- How passive investing has expanded the investible universe and opened new opportunities for investors.
