High yield floating rate notes (HY FRNs) and leveraged loans are both potential sources of senior-secured, high yield income that aim to significantly reduce interest rate risk in an investor’s portfolio.
While investors may expect these strategies to achieve similar outcomes, there are still important differences between them.
Although the market is smaller, HY FRNs typically offer better liquidity than loans, while potentially reducing cyclical risks and offering other diversification benefits.
