ETFs related to European High Yield Bonds recorded strong inflows of +$236,38M on Thursday, July 4th. Investors seem to be more and more involved into High Yield Bonds especially in Europe due to the fact that Investment Grade Bonds are yielding nearly nothing. Indeed, if we take a look at the 10 years sovereing bonds in Europe, nearly every “economically stable” country has a negative yield, which means that they can borrow money and get paid for it. This is the case for France, Germany or Belgium for example. As a consequence, investors are more inclined to take risks and therefore they invest into bonds with higher credit risk. In 2019, $3,4Bn of new shares of ETFs were created on the primary market for the European High Yield Bonds segment, which represents a third of its total assets under management as of today. 16 ETFs are tracking 8 indices related to European High Yield Bonds, and they gather a total of $10,27Bn of assets under management.
