The US high-yield market has staged a strong comeback since its downturn at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and—despite historically tight spreads—fundamentals for credit continue to improve. Along with a strong global economic recovery, credit spreads are getting positive tailwinds from declining default expectations, falling levels of distressed debt, and improving access to capital.

Register now to hear from AllianceBernstein experts who will discuss credit opportunities and more:

  • Why credit spreads could continue to remain tight
  • How a strong upgrade cycle could help propel select credits from high yield to investment grade
  • Where to find select relative value opportunities
  • How active management can pivot in and out of the risk to differentiate portfolios
  • How AB applies cutting-edge tech to uncover trading opportunities
