Protect Against interest Rates With Active Management, Says Janus Exec at M* Conference

News summary by MFWire's editors

The only way to protect against rising interest rates' effect on fixed income portfolios is with active management, said Gibson Smith, CEO of fixed income at Janus Capital Management [profile] at Morningstar's Investment Conference.

Smith says only active managers can shorten durations in a portfolio to stop an interest rate hike, which would really shirt a bond portfolio, reported Fund Industry Intelligence. Allocating to high-yield bonds or bank loans won't cut it because those investment vehicles wouldn't provide complete coverage if interest rates go up.
