Credit Roundtable: What Comes Next for Corporate Credit?

In this panel discussion, Senior Vice President – Investment Specialist Katie Klingensmith talks with Portfolio Manager Bill Zox and Associate Portfolio Manager & Senior Research Analyst Andrew Bogle about the outlook for corporate credit:

  • While both investment grade and high yield defaults have remained mild, are these numbers expected to stay low?
  • Do liquidity walls pose a danger to credit markets?
  • What catalysts could drive a material change in the outlook for high yield and credit markets overall?

Despite the recent pressure on equities, U.S. high yield has remained resilient, helped by a sizable equity cushion. We contend that it would take a material move lower in equities to put pressure on credit spreads. Until then, with the yields being offered in high yield, we continue to think an allocation is warranted.
