In this corporate credit roundtable, Senior Vice President – Investment Specialist Katie Klingensmith discusses opportunities and risks in global credit markets with Portfolio Manager John McClain, Associate Portfolio Manager & Senior Research Analyst Renato Latini, and Research Analyst Kevin O’Neil. They focus on what investors may see in the second half of the year, including:
- Given elevated macroeconomic and monetary policy uncertainty, are short duration exposures in high yield warranted?
- What is the current health of US consumers and the banking sector?
- Are there similarities or different sets of risks across high yield corporate credit, leveraged loans, and private credit?
Investors are starting to chase performance. However, they could face a choppy market in the back half of 2023. According to these experts, patience is warranted, given where valuations are across all asset classes.
