In case investors missed out on the compelling [sic] recent Swiss government bond issue, I am here to lay calm to your FOMO (fear of missing out). It’s baaack. As pointed out by Charlie Bilello … $10,000 invested today for 30 years in the new Swiss government bonds will “grow” to $9,856 at maturity 2049. (note: assumes interest rates reinvested at @ current 30-yr rate of -0.05%).
This path (negative interest rates) most of Europe has embarked upon will eventually end very badly and why i continue to avoid that region of the world with client investment capital.
