After a couple of months in which central bank policy moves rather than politics have dominated, investors’ attention has recently been pulled back to the political arena. Fund manager Wolfgang Bauer joined me this morning to discuss what Austria’s presidential election result, and Catalonia’s unfolding bid for independence from Spain, mean for government bond and credit markets.

Also –would a decisive Abe victory in Japanese general elections next weekend prolong the country’s monetary policy status quo? Tune in to find out.

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
