With a stronger economic outlook globally as we start the year and an outlook for defaults still well below long-run average levels we view high yield as fairly valued. Based on total return expectations we have a preference for US High Yield versus EUR High Yield. We expect returns for 2017 to be largely driven by coupon and carry, rather than by capital appreciation, given current low spread levels.
