Threading the Investment Needle: Low and Rising Interest Rates

Join Chapter members and guests for Part III of our three-part Lunch-and-Learn series. It’s no secret that generating income in today’s low interest rate environment is not easy and often involves pushing clients into riskier assets that they might not be comfortable with. To make things worse traditional fixed income investments, normally the ballast of a diversified portfolio providing principal protection and the primary source of portfolio income, are vulnerable to rising interest rates. Join us and members of the JPMorgan Capital Markets team to better understand the interest rate environment and investment strategies to help navigate the path forward.
