CLOs: a growing market for investors seeking higher yields
1 minute read
Collateralised Loan Obligations (CLOs) are managed portfolios of bank loans that have been securitised into different instruments of varying credit risk and thus varying credit ratings. CLOs are increasingly the linkage between the needs of smaller companies seeking financing and investors seeking higher yields.
Historically, most CLOs were privately placed into the hands of large institutional investors. But as the CLO market has grown, more opportunities for investors to include CLOs in their portfolios are emerging.
Our Market Overview explains why CLOs can be an attractive addition to a diverse portfolio of government and corporate bonds, and can complement other securitised holdings, such as mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and asset-backed securities (ABS).
