Episode 16 – Are Rising Interest Rates Good for Investors?
Interest rates are rising – but is it good or bad for investors? The knee-jerk reaction is that this is a terrible thing, but the reality is that it is not so obvious. Corrado Russo, Managing Partner and Head of Global Securities at Hazelview Investments, explained how the changing interest rate landscape is affecting the portfolio. Unsurprisingly, given his firm’s focus, Rousseau has a clear opinion on this, as well as where we stand with the traditional 60-40 investment model. He opened the discussion by taking a look at his time at Ontario Teachers and how it provided the right platform for his career.
