The high-yield, leveraged bond and loan market now exceeds $2.3 trillion in North America, €650 billion in Europe, and another $600 billion in emerging markets—and it’s growing fast. This market combines aspects of conventional fixed income markets, the event-driven volatility typically associated with equities, and structural features present nowhere else. To succeed in this market, you need credit analysis skills and insights specifically designed for it. Now, for the first time, there’s a complete practical guide to performing this analysis.

Credit Suisse high-yield specialist Robert S. Kricheff focuses on how financial professionals actually prepare and use leveraged finance credit analysis, offering examples addressing diverse scenarios and a wide spectrum of credit risks, from companies near-investment-grade to firms in bankruptcy. He illuminates credit analysis as a dynamic process, shows how to evaluate both financial liquidity and asset protection, demonstrates how to use the field’s key tools, and explains how to apply the insights that make analysis an art, not just a science.
