Equitable for All—Visualizing Our Differences

At MacKay Shields we commit to the equitable treatment of all. To demonstrate this, MacKay worked with artist and photographer Maya Barkai to create this piece, which is meant to embody our diversity, equity and inclusion (left image). The piece of art (right) is created by MacKay's own Alina Sysak and represents the unique and diverse makeup of our firm. 

Forward Guidance: To Neutral and Beyond

In our latest episode of Forward Guidance, we discuss the market reaction to the July FOMC policy decision and communications about the outlook for the economy and policy. Despite the rally in risk assets after the meeting, we note the Fed’s continued resolve to bring down inflation by slowing the economy. 

Explore the 2022 Mid-Year Outlooks from MacKay Shields

We believe fixed income valuations are meaningfully more attractive and current yields have greatly improved the income profiles for investors.  We believe that amid the very negative overall market reaction in the first half of 2022, underlying improvements in sovereign and corporate balance sheets have not been fully reflected in valuations.
