According to Solita Marcelli’s team at UBS Global Wealth Management, owners of could achieve total returns of up to 20% in the event of a U.S. recession.
This prediction is based on the expectation of a significant rally in U.S. debt as investors seek safety amid economic turbulence. The potential for high returns is influenced by several factors, including the Federal Reserve’s stance on interest rates and views on Treasury yield increases expressed by influential investor Bill Ackman.
The performance of several market indices is also seen as significant in this context. These include the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ:), (DJIA), and iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG).
