Look out for more as we continue the series over 2016!

Corporate credit trading at distressed prices are surpassing 2011 levels, and lower rated credits have significantly underperformed higher-rated credits. Despite the uncertainty and volatility in credit markets, we believe it is an exciting time in which investors should focus on the risk and return characteristics of the underlying assets rather than just the structure and liquidity terms of the holding vehicle itself.

In this video, Phil Edwards (European Director of Strategic Research) and Paul Cavalier (Global Head of Fixed Income Boutique) discuss how credit conditions have evolved in recent months and what opportunities that might create for investors in the UK and Europe.
