Schroder ISF Euro High Yield
Capitalising on the opportunities
The high-yield corporate bond market in Europe has seen tremendous growth over recent years as a result of bank deleveraging and sovereign downgrades. It continues to offer a wealth of investment opportunities across a diverse range of industries and companies.
An innovative approach to credit
Understanding how economic events can impact bond issuers across European credit markets is crucial.
Our global team of fixed income specialists share proprietary research and market views to identify forward-looking investment themes based on the economic environment and implement these themes through careful security selection.
We believe that the high yield universe is underesearched when compared with investment grade equivalents. Many high yield issuers are private companies and not listed on any public stock exchange. Schroders’ unique scope as a truly global asset manager gives us a the ability to drill down into these companies to uncover the real winners and losers in the investment set.
