2018 was tough for most asset classes with the blowtorch being applied in the final quarter of the year. While markets have rebounded in 2019 the volatility provided a good stress test for portfolios. One asset class that proved to be resilient was high-yield credit. Vivek Bommi from Neuberger Berman says this is also consistent with how the asset class performed during the GFC.
If you were invested in high-yield at the beginning of 2008 by the end of 2009 you were up almost 20%. There’s almost no other asset classes in the world that match that.
This is one of four characteristics that Bommi
believes investors don’t fully appreciate about this global asset class. Watch
