High-yield bonds are bonds that pay higher interest rates because they have lower credit ratings than investment-grade bonds.

Issuers of high-yield debt tend to be startup companies or capital-intensive firms with high debt ratios. However, some high-yield bonds are fallen angels that lost their good credit ratings.
