High yield in a low yield world

In a yield-starved world, investors are seeking returns that can potentially give a lift to their fixed income portfolios. 

High yield corporate bonds carry a higher degree of risk that they may be unable to meet their obligations to bondholders. Over the longer term however, they have historically offered attractive total returns and we believe that with a selective approach to investing they can play a valuable role within a diversified portfolio.
