Podcast: Global high yield update

Tim Leary joins us on the BlueBay Insights podcast to give a quick update on global high yield markets.  

We asked Tim:

  1. Spreads are at pre-pandemic levels – where can global high yield markets go from here?

  2. Are you seeing any slowing in issuance, or any issuance trends emerging across sectors?

  3. On rates, you’ve commented before that a rates shock to credit is a possibility but not your base case – does this thinking remain the case?

  4. There have only been three HY defaults so far in 2021 – can you give us a quick summary of the defaults landscape?

  5. On a risk-adjusted basis, what are your thoughts on allocating to high yield over investment grade?

  6. Could you sum up your outlook on global HY markets going into H2?
