The Asian USD High Yield Credit Bond Market

27 October 2021 Kangwei Yang Wilson Mak

Following our Asian USD credit primer published last month, we further probe the high yield segment of the Asian (ex-Japan) USD credit bond market. We explore the segment's rapid growth, sector exposures, spreads, and correlations with other asset classes. We also discuss how Chinese issuers play a significant role in this segment. In this article, we will be using relevant IHS Markit iBoxx fixed income benchmarks to represent the major high yield bond markets.

Key observations indicate that Asian USD high yield credit:

  • Currently has a lower level of passive assets tracking it compared with other major high yield credit markets.
  • May act as a credible diversifier to a USD and EUR high yield credit portfolio.
  • Has significant exposure to China issued USD bonds by market value.
  • Can offer a reasonable level of bond liquidity for calibrated portfolios.
