Should investors worry about the maturity wall?
The U.S corporate debt market has had a solid start to the year, with U.S Investment Grade (IG) bonds up 2.7% and U.S. High Yield up 5.4%. Looking ahead, however, investors will be faced with a wave of maturing bonds, also known as a maturity wall. As we highlight in this week’s chart, the next four years will see $4.7 trillion of bonds mature across both IG and speculative-grade debt markets.
