High-yield bonds are bonds that carry a rating of BB+ (Standard & Poor’s) or Ba1 (Moody’s) or lower. They are therefore not as creditworthy as investment-grade bonds (with an AAA to BBB- rating). As a rule, low creditworthiness stands for high risk, which most often means that high-yield bonds pay a higher effective yield and their performance is subject to higher volatility.
