NEW YORK and LONDON, Dec. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Current market conditions, price dispersion and volatility in equities have ushered in a new era of opportunities for fundamentally driven credit and income investors seeking alpha. The next wave in the value cycle, consequently, will highlight the importance of stressed and distressed credit and high-yield bond opportunities.

In response, The Edge Consulting Group LLC announced today the introduction of The Edge Stressed Credit, a third research product presenting credit investors with alpha-generating stressed and distressed bond opportunities reaching yields to maturity of 20% or more.

The Edge serves more than 120 leading asset managers and is annually retained for its track record of accurately predicting future valuations of global mid- and large-cap companies likely to break up or experience a merger or acquisition. Today's announcement marks an eight-year track record, with Edge recommendations generating a nine percent alpha and identifying market-moving special situations years in advance.

"The market environment has entered a credit cycle, so we have created a product unavailable anywhere else focused on compelling, fundamental analysis," said Jim Osman, CEO of The Edge. "Our demand-led offering will synchronize with the needs of money managers who face growing pressure to find excellent investments while remaining cost-conscious. Our global Edge Stressed Credit product will save portfolio managers months of time qualifying an idea and generate excess returns on AUM and for investors," continued Osman.

*The product will formally launch on January 4, 2016. The Edge is offering an exclusive free trial period to the first 100 inquires from registered funds, subject to certain conditions that apply. For instant access, please visit http://www.edgecgroup.com/#contact and enter quote "CREDIT2016".
