Value Opportunities Abound
Credit Markets Offer New Points of Entry
Some sectors of the credit markets present unprecedented value opportunities for investors seeking to achieve their investment objectives this current low-return environment, says Paul Hatfield, Chief Investment Officer and Chief Risk Officer at Alcentra. Alcentra is BNY Mellon's boutique specializing in sub-investment grade debt capital markets in Europe and the United States. Hatfield believes that selective exposure to diversified credit opportunities will become an increasingly important trend among investors. He also thinks that informed asset managers specializing in stressed and distressed instruments will be able to obtain assets below fair value from forced sellers.
