BVTV: Inflation surprises and central bank dilemmas

Ben Lord, corporate bond fund manager and inflation specialist, joined me in the studio this morning, after a week in which we saw both the UK and US CPI prints surprise to the upside. With some central banks ramping up their hawkish rhetoric in recent weeks, what likelihood of rate hikes are markets now pricing in, and what impact is this having on bond markets? Watch BVTV for Ben’s latest thinking.

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
