Top managers reveal the best sectors to back in 2015

As we approach the end of 2014, Citywire Global spoke to five leading fund managers based in the US to find out what their expectations were for next year.

Looking at both major asset classes, we asked US equity specialists Evan Bauman of ClearBridge Investments and Matt Ward of Schroders on the outlook for stocks.

Meanwhile, fixed income managers Rick Rieder of BlackRock, Carl 'Pepper' Whitbeck of AXA IM and Patrick Maldari from Aberdeen shone a light on which bond sectors they were backing to outperform in 2015.

You can view the first part of our New York series, which focuses on how these managers are preparing for the rise interest rates, by clicking here.
