In this #FundManagerChat podcast, Mike Scott, lead fund manager of the Man GLG High Yield Opportunities Strategy explains his investment case for global high-yield bonds.
Mike outlines how he is finding opportunities in global high-yield bond markets in the face of quantitative distortion by central banks, geopolitics and inflationary expectations. He discusses his current geographical preference for European and UK credit, how high-yield credit can still diversify against equities and how he believes he can continue to meet his performance target.
Finally, Mike reveals some of the key issues that investors may be overlooking when deciding whether to allocate to global high-yield credit.
