2020 has been an unprecedented year for the global markets, testing and stretching our thinking around global diversification and portfolio construction. For Canadian investors it has highlighted the need broaden focus beyond Canada and look at other markets for sources of diversification, yield and return. But where and how to allocate global fixed income portfolios remains a key question.

 Marina Mets, Head of Americas, Fixed Income Multi Asset Product Management at FTSE Russell Canada, is joined by Hamid Omoumi, Director, Head of iShares Canadian Sales and Yves Caron, Senior Director External Portfolio Management, CDPQ to examine this question and share their first-hand experience and perspective on index, investment and product approaches to help address it.
