Manage risk and volatility in high-yield markets with Eurex High Yield Index futures

Available On-Demand.

Volatility in the Euro high yield segment has soared as Europe gradually exits a decade of ultra-low rate environment. Inflationary pressures leading to higher borrowing costs caused Euro high yield credit spreads to widen in 2022. This surge in volatility and perceived risk have increased the need for hedging. For market participants invested in sub-investment grade bonds, particularly buy-side firms, this poses both challenges and opportunities. Strategic tools are necessary for effective risk management in this inherently risky market. Euro High Yield Index futures are a derivative product that can help mitigate and manage these risks. Firms invested in high-yield markets can use these instruments as part of an targeted investment strategy to respond effectively to market volatility and help gain a competitive advantage.
