Our view on the sector

The yields on offer from high-yield bonds have proven attractive in a low interest rate environment. They now offer less value than they once did. But we still think there are attractive opportunities for those prepared to look. Funds in this sector invest mainly in 'high yield' or 'non-investment grade' bonds. These are issued by companies thought to be less able to pay off their debts so they offer higher yields to compensate for the extra risk. High-yield bonds have tended to perform better when economic growth is strong because companies generally find it easier to pay their debts. But they are riskier and sometimes perform more like shares than investment grade bonds. Funds in this sector could be a good addition to a diversified portfolio invested to generate income.
