Online PR News – 05-November-2010 – – LOS ANGELES — November 4, 2010 — First Western Capital Management, a leading provider of diversified fixed income and total return strategies to North American foundations, endowments, and pension plans, has released a report on the state of the U.S. bond market.
The report—Bond Bubbleology—takes aim at the existence of a bond ‘bubble’ and questions the consensus opinion of today’s fixed income sector.
“With so many investors voraciously pursuing bonds with ever diminishing yields, it’s easy for market pundits to toss around the ‘bond bubble’ idea,” says Barry Julien, Managing Director of Fixed Income for First Western Capital Management, and author of the paper. “But while there’s no question that the landscape of the financial markets has changed, we’re simply not witnessing the kind of rampant speculation that characterizes a bubble.”
Mr. Julien and his fixed income team were recognized this year by PSN as a “Top Guns Manager of the Decade” in the Core Fixed Income category.
Bond Bubbleology is the latest addition to a body of thought pieces produced by First Western Capital Management’s investment team. The collection of reports is part of the strong fundamental research philosophy that guides the Los Angeles-based firm’s overall approach to investment management.
