Fed policy poses risk to long bond -BlackRock's Rieder

NEW YORK, Feb 27 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve is in no rush to hike rates, creating an opportunity for risk assets but posing a threat to long-term bonds, top BlackRock Inc investor Rick Rieder said on Tuesday.

"The long-end of the curve could well have further downside from here," said Rieder, BlackRock's Chief Investment Officer of Global Fixed Income. "This segment of the market is particularly price-sensitive today, and thus particularly perilous." (Reporting by Trevor Hunnicutt Editing by Chris Reese)
