Summary

 

Ryan Weldon, from IFM’s Debt Investments Team in New York, features in our Fed Wrap Market Update videos discussing central bank themes in debt markets, with a particular focus on the US Federal Reserve.

In this edition, Ryan discusses the recent US Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting where rates were hiked another 75 basis points but the bond market rallied. This vote of confidence in the Fed’s strategy came as Jerome Powell reassured investors that the Fed is committed to bringing inflation back to their 2% target, even if it means slower growth and some reversal of recent job gains.
