Every year our team of analysts publishes a series of Outlooks that cover near-term and long-term forecasts for 2023 for the global markets, sectors, and issuers. We dive into the themes that are most relevant for fixed income investors in the year ahead.

In these Outlooks, analysts refresh their recommendations for more than 40 sectors, provide picks and pans for IG and HY investors, examine operating trends and expectations as well as capital allocation, and deliver charts and tables to help you make informed investment decisions. Our team highlights which credits we think are most likely to outperform during the year, while providing caution on names to avoid.
