(Bloomberg) – From money managers at BlackRock and T Rowe Price, analysts at Goldman Sachs, Blackstone and KKR lending deals, a new economic reality prompts Wall Street’s most powerful forces to adjust their investment strategies The rise in inflation that will come with the post-pandemic economic boom threatens U’s decline by four To reverse decades The first signs of this shift are already evident: These and other companies are investing money in loans and notes with floating rates as opposed to the fixed payments for most conventional bonds Payments for floating rate debt rise like policy rates, which helps maintain their value. “We’ve had a long 35-40 year decline that has been great support for fixed income, great support for the expansion of stock multiples, and those of us who live and breathe it was a wind. We were on our backs for a long time, “said Dwight Scott, global credit director at Blackstone, which manages corporate debt of $ 145 billion.” I don’t think we’re the wind have more in the back, but we have the wind noc h not in the face This is what the conversation about inflation is really about “To be clear, nobody predicts the kind of rampant inflation that messed up the US Economy Almost Five Decades Ago Still, a subtle change in the tide is already underway, many say not since 2013, in the months before Fed chairman Ben Bernanke sparked what is known as the tantrum by suggesting the central bank slow the pace If monetary stimulus could slow, global bonds were under such pressure earlier in the year, amid growing concerns that price pressures could rebound in the face of an economic boom fueled by vaccines, pent-up consumer demand, and another round of government stimulus Ten-year government bond yields up more than 0.4 percentage points In the midst of upheaval, perhaps no market is drawing more attention than leveraged loans, with weekly inflows into funds that buy this debt already topping $ 1 billion three times this year, leading to another Foam spray ch, having not crossed that threshold since 2017, the asset class’s relatively high returns make it an attractive investment for companies looking to generate returns as the gap between government bond rates and corporate debt is narrowing at the same time The continued monetary and fiscal support from policymakers increases corporate profits and helps them lower the debt multiples that skyrocketed in the pandemic, but what makes leveraged loans particularly attractive to many is their variable cash flow during the long end of treasury Curve continues its dramatic rise, its lack of duration – or price sensitivity to movements in underlying interest rates – offers investors significant protection, even in an environment where the Fed keeps its policy rate close to zero and on the front-end Anchored for Years to Come “You are not buying leveraged loans today because you expect the floating rate component to rise,” said Lotfi Karoui, Chief Credit Strategist at Goldman Sachs. “That is not the thesis that the floating rate component will be foreseeable Time to stay the same you buy it because reflation is more damaging to the high yield bond market than it does to the credit market “That doesn’t mean junk bonds don’t attract their fair share of cash too. The asset class can often be a safe haven from the threat of rising interest rates As an improving macro backdrop tends to lower credit risk and spreads tightening, new issuance hit a record pace earlier in the year and the relentless hunt for risky assets pushed the yields on debt below 4% for the first time earlier this month, given the robust Micha said the prospects for growth el Kushma, Chief Investment Officer, Global Fixed Income at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, said he was making it convenient to further downgrade credit quality on B- and CCC-rated bonds in order to generate returns. The company also has leveraged loan exposure added, “when it makes sense,” he said, noting that some clients are unable to hold the debt in their portfolios, but some say record-low returns even in the riskiest segments of the speculative bond market coupled with the fact that the average maturities have increased significantly over the past year, increasing the potential risk and reducing the attractiveness of the asset class as protection against credit “We have increased our allocation to bank loans, in part by selling high-yield bonds,” said Sebastien Page, head of the global multi Asset at T Rowe Price said via email, “Let’s put it this way: If we can get a similar return on high-yield bonds and loans, the asset class that should perform best as interest rates go up – loans – looks more attractive on a risk-adjusted basis.” Floater Fever doesn’t any money manager can of course simply increase their credit risk For many, an alternative is the floating rate note market, a normally sleepy corner of high-grade credit with a relatively tight buyer base, and demand has risen in recent weeks as investors seek to avoid negative total returns on fixed-income debt, which leads to this a new issue, including the first non-financial transaction that is tied to the Secured Overnight Financing rate This benchmark is designed to replace Libor as the benchmark interest rate for hundreds of billions of dollars in floating-rate debt. “The big risk in the market is really inflation, whether temporary or ingrained,” said Arvind Narayanan, director of investment grade lending at Vanguard “There is just a tremendous amount of monetary and fiscal stimulus in the marketplace to fuel economic growth. Others are turning to more esoteric asset classes, including secured loan commitments and personal credit, as they seek higher returns and a more floating rate exposure to Blackstone, which is a credit asset of $ 145 billion under management, has invested heavily in leveraged loans and direct loans in recent years, and accelerated the relocation last month according to Scott It has also grown to become one of the largest CLO managers in the world, according to portfolio manager Ryan Kohan, Western Asset Management the all Okation in leveraged loans and CLOs is increasing and continues to believe asset classes are an attractive opportunity. Ultimately, a hiccup in the recovery could quickly dent inflation expectations and lead to a decline in interest rates. Bond bulls also argue that the likelihood of price pressures that existed before the pandemic which occurred suddenly as a result was absent, given the ongoing structural changes in the economy is at best low “Inflation will be more temporary than sustainable,” said Dominic Nolan, Senior Managing Director at Pacific Asset Management. “We need to see how steep the curve will be and whether the perceived inflationary pressures are actually reflected in inflation “Still, many say that the Fed’s apparent tolerance of overshooting the inflation front in the coming months and years will make this time different” Rising interest rates could very well e be on the prelude to inflation when we factor in the current macro environment, “said John Reed, head of global trade at KKR, which has approximately $ 79 billion in lending assets, via email.” A modest rise in interest rates over that current levels seem likely for the remainder of 2021, but the Fed has been transparent in getting the market ready to invest behind yield, growth and recovery ”(updates with comment from Western Asset Management on Dec.
