    Taking On More Risk for Yield Isn’t Necessarily the Best Move

    Higher bond prices are conversely pushing down yields to fresh lows for Treasury notes, causing investors to seek yield in higher, riskier debt issues.

Per a Fortune report, “Global interest rates, already low for most of the decade since the Great Recession, are falling again, making it harder for pension funds and small investors to harvest the slow-and-steady interest income that makes bonds the foundation of many retirement funds.
