Building resilient strategies for a volatile interest rate environment

Jim Switzer, global head of municipals at AllianceBernstein, discusses the challenges, or rather, impossibility of trying to predict markets this week. With the backdrop of volatile interest rates, wars, and political uncertainty, Switzer unpacks how his firm builds portfolios and trading strategies that are resilient to the fickle climate.

Given the complex world of muni bonds, the global head also discusses how his team is leveraging technology and thinks «systematically» when it comes to its strategies.

In this episode, Switzer also talks about the importance of customization on the desk, how AB has used tech to cut costs and drive efficiencies, and his views on the invaluable need for traders to have tech skills.

Finally, in our extended show, the global head unpacks his views on how he sees execution management systems transforming the future of the fixed-income desk.
