Market commentary

Bond markets were generally calmer as the move to extremely low interest rates became the expectation for the foreseeable future. Corporate debt saw a rebound as the central bank and government efforts helped reduce the impact of the COVID epidemic. In the UK the Bank of England expanded its bond buying programme by a further £100bn, taking the total to £300bn since the previous quarter end. This has helped push yields down and prices up, especially for the long dated corporate bond holdings.
