Structured Credit: A Good Diversifier and Late Cycle Solution

The structured credit market provides attractive levels of income with lower levels of volatility than high yield and emerging market debt. Since the financial crisis, the sector has evolved with better underwriting and loan quality leading to a higher quality asset class. A relatively low correlation to the broader fixed income market, high yield and equities makes it a good complement to existing fixed income holdings and a good diversifier in a broad portfolio, particularly as a late cycle alternative solution.
