Summary

Where are we in the credit cycle?

Are we nearing the end or the beginning of the U.S. credit cycle?

Are the yields for high yield properly compensating for the risks?

Kim Parlee speaks with Greg Kocik, Managing Director at TD Asset Management and Oleg Melentyev, Head of High Yield Credit Strategy at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
