Not created equal: Surveying investments in non-investment grade U.S. corporate debt

Alts-Not- Created-Equal
This report provides an update on the opportunity in non-investment grade U.S. corporate debt.

Institutional investors searching for yield and current income opportunities have increased their allocations to non-investment grade corporate bonds and loans. The case for investing in these assets is clear with the 10-year Treasury under 3% and historically low rates across the yield curve. Non-investment grade U.S. corporate debt has historically produced yields in the 6-10% range or greater (past performance does not guarantee future results). And with default rates below their long-term averages, capital has poured into noninvestment grade assets as investors expect low interest rates to persist.

Investments in fixed income securities are not guaranteed and are subject to interest rate, inflation, and credit risks.
