Q3 2022 market review: When it rains, it pours!
Ouch! What a quarter!
While the current generation of investors has gotten used to downward equity volatility, the double-whammy of concurrent sharply increasing interest rates induced real fear into the long-term segment of the bond markets not seen for several decades. This can clearly be seen in the sharp rise in the yield curve as depicted on page 13 of our usual Quarterly Market Review. Sharply increasing interest rates are a reminder that an investor’s bond portion should comprise exclusively of short-duration investment-grade bonds, since long-duration bonds and non-investment grade bonds really tanked in the last three months.
