Speculative Grade Bonds

Receive potential higher yield by investing in these speculative grade bonds which typically carry a higher risk of default or other adverse credit events as compared to investment grade bonds.

Speculative Grade bonds are those rated BB+ and below by Standard & Poor’s (S&P) and Ba1 and below by Moody’s. These credit-rating agencies assess the credit risk of the issuer of the bonds, and assign them a credit rating based on information available at the time. Credit risk rating represents the agencies’ opinion on the possibility that the bond issuer may fail to pay what is owed.

These products are only recommended for investors with an appropriate risk appetite as they carry significant risks.
