Often overshadowed by its older and more developed U.S. cousin, the European High Yield (EHY) market's growth rate has been encouraging. As such, the market has blossomed since 2009 by more than doubling in size over the past four years. Its size now surpasses EUR 300bn as 2013 set a new record in new issuing. Flows into the asset class have also been impressive and performance wise, the EHY market has achieved strong performances through the last couple of years. Co-Founder of Capital Four Management A/S and Co-Portfolio Manager of the Nordea's European High Yield Bond Strategy, Torben Skødeberg will share his insights into the developments and recent dynamics of the European high yield market. The management's investment approach follows a rigorous bottom-up credit selection investment process that is believed to create value for EHY investors. This approach has been awarded several times by many rating agencies over the last years. Amongst these is the 2014 Lipper Fund Award in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, for its 5 year performance in the "Bond Europe High Yield Category". Mr. Skødeberg would also elaborate on how they manage to take the best out of the opportunities existing in the market, in order to consistently deliver performance above most market competitors.
