In contrast with 2008, money managers now prefer investing in Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLO), backed by pools of debt.

Curious: How would an investor know if a fund is investing in a CLO as opposed to a regular bond?

To be more specific, if I look at the Blackrock High Yield Fund (BHYIX) holdings, is there anything in this list that tells me that the asset is a CLO?

Or, when you refer to “money managers”, are you referring only to hedge fund and private wealth money managers?

Thanks.
