With European corporate default rates at (or close to) all-time lows and the ECB expected to embark on another round of QE, this presentation will:
  • Examine current market dynamics in the sub-investment grade space and the inter-play of technicals and fundamentals 
  • Assess the importance of credit selection across market cycles and in different economic conditions
  • Compare relative value opportunities across high yield bonds and leveraged loans
  • Explore how flexible mandates can capture superior risk-adjusted returns in a portfolio
  • Evaluate the resources required to build and manage high yield bond and leveraged loan portfolio
11:25 AM - 11:45 AM
With a late credit cycle looming and trickier market conditions ahead what should European Investors be thinking. This may not be the time to over-stretch for yield but a portfolio of well managed corporate bonds can deliver solid risk-adjusted returns. ESG analysis when embedded in the credit research process can aid quality security selection over the long term.
