Corporations face an uncertain future in 2012. Even as the U.S. economy is showing signs of recovery, concerns about Europe and slowing growth in Asia call into question the strength and sustainability of the global economic recovery.

As a result, U.S. yields remain low today. Companies with investable cash are looking for higher yield, but at the same time want to minimize risk and maintain ample liquidity. On the other hand, companies with debt on their books are enjoying the benefits of low rates but are concerned about possible changes ahead.

Some of the topics we address in this webinar playback include:

  • The prospects for the U.S. and global economy, the current Federal Reserve stance on rates and how that is likely to evolve
  • What is the yield curve currently predicting for inflation, growth and Fed policy and how we see that changing
  • Strategies that are typically used by investors to help optimize returns and borrowers to minimize risk in uncertain times
  • Searching for yield: Extending and broadening your scope while controlling risk
  • Reducing risk: Ways to hedge in this environment and a discussion of a range of hedging solutions
