To fix or not to fix

We look at the reasons for fixing rates… who should, and when.

Central banks have been taking extreme measures to drive down short-term interest, and longer-term bond, rates hoping to stimulate the economy and repair the shaky finances of banks and governments. Although not talked about enough, this is being done at great loss to defensive investors, institutional pension funds and annuity providers worldwide. Other winners are borrowers who are paying a lot less to use other people’s money – that is until asset prices move past fair to over-valued which will hurt new borrower-investors.
