Explaining 'duration' risk

Explaining 'duration' risk 30-May-2022

Duration is the measure of the number of years of cash flows from an investment it requires for a buyer to get their cost of investment back.Generally the longer the duration of an investment the higher the risk. We know that we can only make returns by taking risks, but timing which risks to take, and when, is crucial. Our analysis tells us it is better to have low duration in portfolios today and we have benefitted greatly from that recently. Higher interest rates and increased event risk are bad for high duration assets. The downward pressure we have been seeing in expensive high growth companies in the stock market, or even high duration bonds, is likely to continue.
