Jackson Investment Insights Series – Episode 3
Fixed Income Investing in a Rising Rate Environment

With interest rates hitting all-time lows in 2020, the prospect of rising inflation amid pandemic shortages, and the economic re-opening in 2021, many believe that rates have nowhere to go but up – which has potentially good and bad ramifications for bond investors.

Join us for a conversation with two highly regarded fixed income experts – DoubleLine's Jeffrey J. Sherman and Steven F. Rocco of Lord Abett – as they share their perspectives on the current state of the market.

Key discussion topics include:

• How serious is the threat of inflation to bond investors?
• Potential responses to inflation from the U.S. Federal Reserve
• How investors may seek to protect portfolios against the total return losses commonly associated with rising interest rates
• Where they see potential opportunities in fixed income in this environment

The Jackson Investment Insights Series features respected portfolio managers and market thought leaders in diverse panel discussions and one‐on‐one interviews. Join us to gain key insights on investment topics and trends so you can leverage the freedom of the Jackson platform to help clients plan for retirement.
