As the general population's demographics proportionately increases with age, will the demand for fixed income securities increase due to more reliance on income streams, and will that cause the price of these assets to increase in percentage, almost, or as much as equities, creating outsized capital gains, if liquidated? Have we seen that beginning to appear, or is it my imagination?

In other words, what is the general consensus on the near and say five year outlook on pricing and appreciation of fixed income securities, of course, assuming a relatively stable interest rate environment?

Are there any thoughts or strategies along these lines, or am I reading something here that may be incorrect?

Thanks
