U.S. High Yield Team

The U.S. High Yield team utilizes a rigorous, bottom-up approach to security selection:

  • Focuses on credit fundamentals and avoids momentum-driven strategies
  • Manages credit risk and invests opportunistically when the reward justifies the risk
  • Diversifies portfolios across issuers, sectors, and maturities
  • Documents rationale supporting each initial investment in a credit
  • Uses a contrarian philosophy with an emphasis on the relative risk/reward characteristic of each individual credit
  • Uses the vast resources of Wells Capital Management to support the team's intensive research philosophy
