Jeffrey Mueller of Eaton Vance considers US high yield at Lausanne Summit

Jeffrey Mueller, portfolio manager and global analyst at Eaton Vance Investment Managers will look over reasons why investors need to avoid throwing out the good ideas when shying away from US high yield as an asset class, when he takes part in the upcoming Pan-European Summit Lausanne 2016, 19-21 April.

The asset class has been hit with higher levels of volatility, particularly as investors fret about the impact of falling commodity prices on the energy and commodity sectors. Concerns have also been raised over liquidity levels.

However, there are also arguments to consider that investors who look carefully can find low default rates and spreads that are wider than long term averages.

Mueller is a vice president of Eaton Vance Management International, portfolio manager and global analyst on Eaton Vance’s high yield team. He is responsible for buy and sell decisions, portfolio construction and risk management for the firm’s high yield strategies. He leads investment management and credit research for all non-US high yield opportunities. He joined Eaton Vance in 2015.

Mueller began his career in the investment management industry in 2004. Before joining Eaton Vance, he was a high yield portfolio manager with Threadneedle Asset Management. He was previously affiliated with Centaurus Capital Ltd. and Amaranth Advisors LLC. He earned a BBA from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
