Junk Bonds/High Yield Bonds Webinar

In the aftermath of March’s flight to cash as an epidemic centered in China became a global pandemic, funds dedicated to junk bonds have flourished despite the impact falling income streams are having on the ability of issuers from energy companies to car rental firms to service their debts. What is driving demand for an asset class that some analysts believe will experience default rates that are three to four times higher than they were coming into 2020?

EPFR, part of Informa Financial Intelligence, hosted a webinar on June 10, 2020 where Research Director, Cameron Brandt and Senior Quantitative Analyst, Sayad Baronyan compared the current trend with investor reaction during previous selloffs, assessed the role yield hunger and the US Federal Reserve’s support is playing in the huge flows seen by High Yield Bond Funds since April, and look ahead to the second half of the year.
