Despite a range of negative macro risks, Vivek Bommi, from US$355 billion investment firm Neuberger Berman, argues here that markets still look constructive, and that his key asset class, high yield bonds, is positioned to continue delivering 4-6% total return.
When we sat down, we asked him what the main risk to his thesis are. Vivek told us that the main risks from his perspective are those at company level such as: “credit deterioration, free cashflow moving down, leverage increasing and interest coverage ratios weakening”.
In this short video interview, he explains his market view and then finishes by answering our surprise question of what market risks keep him up at night.
