The ECB's QE program and soft economic data have driven fixed-income returns, while miserly yields on sovereign debt make U.S. corporates more attractive to global investors.

Ahead of the ECB's impending bond purchases, global investors have been attracted to U.S. debt's higher all-in yields and purchasing-power protection as the U.S. dollar appreciates.

Although investment-grade bonds have performed better recently, we expect high-yield bonds to hold their value better in the medium term as rates rise and the economy continues to grow.
