Strong demand and limited new supply help boost the leveraged loan market

Ajeet Atwal, Portfolio Manager on the BlueBay U.S. Fixed Income Team, examines the supply and demand factors that are driving the ongoing strength of the leveraged loan market in the U.S.

Summary points

  • The Fed’s higher for longer strategy has created strong demand for floating rate assets.
  • Supply of new loans has been dampened by a lack of M&A activity.
  • Given the positive macro background, the opportunity to invest in both leveraged loans and CLOs is attractive due to the strong carry and strength of underlying borrowers.
