Shape Management Brochure

  1. Interest rates are difficult, if not impossible to predict, yet drive many investment decisions.
  2. Yield is one of the most relied upon performance metric that drives many fixed income investment decisions, yet it is often based on incomplete information and assumptions.
  3. Despite interest rate movements being difficult, if not impossible, to predict, many investors use duration as their primary risk measure when selecting bonds. Duration is based on assumptions that we believe only give a partial picture and can potentially mislead investors.
