Some of the questions the panel will address include: What is the outlook for rates, and how are fixed-income investors preparing? What tools for hedging credit risk are most useful in today's environment? How are regulatory changes affecting issuance of collateralized loan obligations? In structured credit, where is the best value and which areas are investors shunning? How are managers using credit default swaps these days, and how have those instruments evolved over the past decade? What impact is commodity price volatility having on credit markets? Which non-U.S. markets are attractive today, and where will the opportunities be in the near future? What areas of the credit markets make you optimistic, and which keep you up at night?
