High-yield bonds, also known as high-yield debt, are issued by organizations that do not qualify for “[[investment-grade]]” ratings by one of the leading credit rating agencies ([[Moody’s Investors Service]], [[Standard & Poor’s]] Ratings Services and [[Fitch Ratings]]). Bond issuers with a greater risk of [[default]] are rated below investment grade.

These issuers must pay a higher [[interest rate]] to attract investors in the bonds and to compensate them for the risks of investing in organizations of lower credit quality. Organizations that issue high-yield debt include many U.S. corporations, certain U.S. banks, various foreign governments and a few foreign corporations.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.investinginbonds.com/learnmore.asp?catid=5&subcatid=19|name=What Are High Yield Bonds?|org=investinginbonds.com|date=March 6, 2009}}</ref>
