The Implications of Negative Interest Rates with Dylan Oelofse
Negative interest rates are a conundrum to economists and financial analysts. Negative interest rates present challenges for central’s banks’ management of monetary policy. While negative rates are a boon to the borrower, they present challenges to individual savers and institutional investors.
The presentation will be from a bank bond trader and hedge fund manager perspective. And will feature money creation, public and private, the constellation of liabilities that make up our modern monetary infrastructure and how that has led to negative rates. The talk will include a case study on European negative rates.
