Volker Wieland regarding negative returns of government bonds (FAZ)

ECB President Mario Draghi recently sent the message that the Governing Council is not unlikely to expand its quantitative easing further at the next meeting. At the moment there are already various government bonds of the euro area with negative returns. Who is holding these bonds, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) asks.

Professor Volker Wieland explains that there are not many alternatives for banks and investors to place high amounts of funds for a certain time without the risk of losing money.
