Chasing high returns (that come with high risk) is a common mistake that investors make when interest rates are artificially low. This was observed during the housing bubble, when many investors were steered to mortgage-backed securities and subprime credit products, which did have higher returns, but also came with very high risk. Those investments did not turn out well when the housing bubble popped, to put it mildly.
Another example during the housing bubble was Auction Rate Securities – Long term bonds that were sold to investors as safe-as-cash, but actually carried high liquidity risk.
