U.S. High Yield

The U.S. High Yield strategy is focused on long-term credit performance and total return based on a conservative credit philosophy with a substantial emphasis on avoiding losses through careful security selection. The objective is to identify superior credits in the high-yield market and outperform high-yield benchmarks with less volatility over the full credit cycle by avoiding uncompensated risk and focusing on downside protection. The investment team uses a bottom-up approach in assessing credit analysis, company selection, and sector/industry valuation.
