Building Portfolio Resiliency: 10 Reasons to Incorporate High Yield Now
We believe it’s an opportune time to add high yield bonds to your portfolios as a diversifier. Here are 10 reasons why.
Today’s environment of inflation, rising rates, hawkish central banks, and heightened market volatility have left many investors wary of investment-grade bonds, which tend to have relatively low yields and are sensitive to fluctuations in interest rates.
High yield bonds, however, appear well positioned to weather a recession and tend to be more resilient in a rising rate environment. And, the high yield bond market is in much better health than it was during previous downturns, making this an opportune time to consider adding the asset class to your portfolios as a diversifier.
