The global bond market offers US-based investors the opportunity to add both higher yields and diversity to their fixed income portfolios. With current US Treasuries and Bank CD’s yielding returns that are lower than than even the current inflation rate, income investors are increasingly being forced to either continue losing buying power “safely,” or to hunt for alternate (added risk) fixed income investments in a jungle of choices. When you add together the US dollar’s declining value against other currencies and the Federal Reserves tremendous increase of money supply, mix in the friction and fighting by both political parties over what should be agreed upon as a “workable plan” to start addressing this nation’s large and growing debt woes, here at Durig Capital we have good reason to believe that acquiring global debt instruments with significantly higher yields may be a vital ingredient to help reduce risk by providing some unique diversification while being likely to greatly enhance fixed income cash flow. This is especially applicable if all of a person’s net worth (i.e., their income, business, home, car, etc.) is based solely in US currency.
