Oaktree established the European High Yield Bond strategy in 1999 when the European high yield bond market was still in its nascent stage. The strategy seeks to capitalize on attractive risk/return opportunities in Europe by employing the same investment approach successfully applied by our U.S. High Yield Bond team for over 25 years. Our European portfolios are managed by a dedicated team in our London office under the direction and leadership of portfolio manager James Turner.
"The European high yield bond market has grown significantly over the past few years," says Mr. Turner. "This growth has allowed for the construction of diverse portfolios of bonds issued by creditworthy companies from a variety of sectors across developed European countries."
We view careful credit analysis and thoughtful diversification as key to the successful management of high yield bonds. Our value-oriented approach and risk-controlled methodology, which has been refined over many market cycles.
