Bonds, banks and what's next

30 Mar, 2023 | Return|

What started in community banks in the US is now playing out in the global bond market. To explore what has taken place in the banking sector over the past few weeks, Square Mile's Investment Director, Chris Fleming is joined by Chris Bowie, Partner and Portfolio Manager of the TwentyFour Corporate Bond fund.

In this short podcast, they discuss:

  • The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and how this differs from Credit Suisse.

  • AT1 bonds - what they are, their history and whether the write down of these bonds will impact the wider bond market.

  • How the central banks have responded, and the wider economic outlook.
