  • The investment grade corporate bond market has become one of the casualties of investors’ search for liquidity; it therefore deserves a second look.
  • The pressure we have seen in the commercial paper market, along with large redemptions from short-dated corporate bond funds, have created two interesting areas of opportunity, in our view. 
  • We believe a barbell strategy of investing in a basket of short-dated (1- to 3-year maturities) and long-dated (20- to 30-year maturities) bonds from companies with higher credit ratings and strong balance sheets is an attractive one.
