S&P Capital IQ's Leveraged Commentary And Data (LCD) Business Raises Focus On High Yield Bonds

NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognizing the expanding interest in the high yield bond asset class across a wide spectrum of investors and traders, including institutions, hedge funds, insurance companies, pension funds, and individuals, S&P Capital IQ Leveraged Commentary & Data (LDC), the premier source of leveraged finance market news and analysis, today launched  HighYieldBond.com, a free website featuring high yield bond market news, analysis, and data.

"More than ever, having current, in-depth information and analysis about bonds and bond markets is essential to be successful in the leveraged finance market; that's why we've developed HighYieldBond.com," says Steve Miller, Managing Director, S&P Capital IQ, and head of LCD.  "High yield is having its strongest year ever, with issuance through September 24 running at $240 billion. That is on pace to exceed 2010's record total of $287 billion. We've developed HighYieldBond.com as a site where finance pros, those interested in the market and the general public alike can follow, analyze and learn about the market."

Like its sister site, LeveragedLoan.com,HighYieldBond.com was designed to provide users with a broad but detailed overview of current market conditions and opportunities.   It includes news reporting and analysis of key market trends, as well as a robust assortment of market statistics, from new-issue volume to high yield bond yields to index levels.
