The report also reviews the negative-yielding debt landscape in the investable fixed-income market in detail and asserts that asset managers need to consider certain strategies, including: taking advantage of their global footprint, adopting a nimble approach, and demonstrating acumen across a wide range of less traditional and fundamentally active strategies to help generate positive returns.
