High Yield and Leveraged Finance Analysis and Investing

This course begins with foundation work covering the background of high yield and leveraged finance markets, the instruments and their key terms and conditions, leveraged buyout (LBO) structuring, and a cash flow template that provides key insights on corporate debt service capacity.

The course then considers business, financial and instrument aspects of high yield credit analysis, recovery analysis and common drivers of corporate distress, and valuation. Real company examples and in-depth case studies cover a variety of high yield issuers across sectors, with a focus on the US. These case studies illustrate various types of investment situations that arise in the high yield space – companies in structural decline, successful and unsuccessful LBOs, turnaround situations, highly cyclical businesses and fallen angels.

The program caters for delegates at all experience levels, from beginner, through intermediate to advanced.
