Seventy percent of respondents to a NeuGroup survey conducted in partnership with Clearwater Analytics, Going Out the Yield Curve: Benchmarking Investment Strategies, report they do not intend to extend duration.
Key Findings. The accompanying white paper highlights our findings as well as practitioner input from three, follow-up focus groups. Here are the three main takeaways:
- Investible cash. Corporate investors expect their significant, strategic cash balances to remain steady or grow this year as they monitor current events and evolving market conditions.
- Extending duration. The most common response to recent shifts in the market has been to maintain—or slightly shorten—duration, reflecting concerns about market volatility and rising interest rates.
- External managers. The amount of investible cash on the balance sheet continues to play a factor in offering economy of scale to corporates, driving those with smaller portfolios to seek the expertise of external managers.
