U.S. financial institutions have traditionally insured the typical U.S. household against persistent shocks to U.S. inflation through the U.S. mortgage market. The bond risk premium is effectively the price of long-run inflation risk insurance charged by these U.S. intermediaries. Starting in the late 90's, these intermediaries have increasingly re-sold their U.S. inflation risk exposure to new market participants. We explore the equilibrium implications for bond return predictability in a segmented markets model of the bond market. These changes can account for the recent changes in bond return predictability.
