Chris discusses how senior secured bonds differ to broader high-yield bonds and examines how their place in a company’s capital structure affects their performance characteristics. He also outlines factors influencing his regional and sector positioning and explains his portfolio composition in the current interest rate and macroeconomic environment.
Chris also considers the positioning of the business and credit-default cycle and how the extra principal protection offered by secured bonds may have been overlooked by traditional high-yield investors.
