We study rational functions f of degree d+1 such that f is univalent in the exterior unit disc, and the image of the unit circle under f has the maximal number of cusps (d+1) and double points (d−2). We introduce a bi-angled tree associated to any such f. It is proven that any bi-angled tree is realizable by such an f, and moreover, f is essentially uniquely determined by its associated bi-angled tree. This combinatorial classification is used to show that such f are in natural 1:1 correspondence with anti-holomorphic polynomials of degree d with d−1 distinct, fixed critical points (classified by their Hubbard trees).
